Banksia Park is a park on the banks of the Yarra River in Heidelberg. The park is well suited for our event, lots of walking tracks, shaded areas, toilets etc. There is also a very large (5acre) fully fenced lead-free area for dogs. This off-lead area was very well received at our puppy picnic.
How to get there
Vehicle entry is available from Templestowe Road, Bulleen (Melway 32 E5). Once in the park turn right at the first roundabout – the meeting point is at the carpark (end of the road) near to the
entrance to the off-lead dog park.The toilet block at Banksia Park is wheelchair accessible.
