Have just discovered this park. What great facilities. Beautiful flat oval to walk on. What was Columbia park before it was a park - there are the remainders of two colums near Jells Rd, was this a church entrance? Admin. Some information about the structure from Wikipedia. - In Columbia Park on Jells Road, there are steps, and a brick outline of where the "bellenden" homestead once stood. This was a solid brick home reportedly built for W.D. Robertson, a retired Melbourne baker. It had a tower which gave a commanding view towards the Dandenong Ranges. During World War II, the building was in use as a home for children with infantile paralysis, then known as "spastic" babies. When the mothers were needed to work on the farms left idle by the men who had gone to war, their special needs babies were cared for at Columbia Park. The house was occupied by a family named Jungwirth post-war and was in ruins by the time V.F.L Park was built nearby.
