Queens Park (Moonee Ponds)



Queens Park is a small retreat from the busy streets near by. It is a popular park, featuring a rose and sunken gardens a lake and playgrounds.

A picturesque cottage is the focal point of the park with its idyllic surrounds and lovely public art pieces. A gravel path surrounds the lake where seats and picnic tables are provided beneath old established exotic trees, with the lake a haven for a variety of birds. A rose garden and a sunken garden are part of the many attractions of the park. Concerts and other entertainments are common on weekends.

Queens Park was originally used as a water reserve for travelling stock. It was also known to fortune seekers as the first camping ground on the way to the gold diggings. Burke and Wills camped near here on the first night of their journey.

The name Queens Park was selected to honour and commemorate the Golden Jubilee
of Queen Victoria. On your trip around Queens Park, take time to enjoy the bird life and some of the magnificent flora. You should find Elms, Pepper Trees, Bunya Bunyas, Moreton Bay Figs, Flame Trees and more.

The two cannons at the corner of Pascoe Vale Road and Kellaway Avenue were presented to the citizens of Essendon in 1906. Look for the colourful mosaics around the old curator’s cottage. The cottage dates back to 1891.

Facilities operating within Queens Park includes Moonee Ponds Bowling Club and Queens Park Pool.
