The City of Melbourne and Victorian Government have opened reinstated parkland on the site of the former Royal Children’s Hospital in Royal Park. The parkland creates a gateway to Royal Park.

The community contributed to the design of the parkland through an extensive community engagement process where they expressed their ideas and vision for the site.

The reinstated parkland reflects the broader landscape of Royal Park with gullies, grasslands and woodlands.

The features of the park, such as plants and play elements, represent the seven Wurundjeri seasons, as a way to encourage discovery and understanding of Indigenous Melbourne.

Features of the parkland include; open grassy lawns, a nature-based play space, water play areas, swings, slides, sandpit, tunnels, ropes course and a networks of paths invite you to explore further into Royal Park.
