It is an example of nineteenth century residential development around a large landscaped square. Development occurred as a result of a boom following the Victorian gold rush. It was influenced by similar, urban design in London, but such design on such a scale is unparalleled in Australia.
In the shape of a large rectangular area with semi-circular crescents at either end, the heritage area includes the St Vincent Place precinct bounded by Park Street, Cecil Street, Bridport Street, Cardigan Place and Nelson Road. The park is bisected by Montague Street, allowing the passage of trams on route 1. Several of the streets are lined with the original cobbled blue stone and gutters. It is registered with the National Trust of Australia and on the Victorian Heritage register for its aesthetic, historical, architectural and social significance to the State of Victoria.

A lovely spot for a picnic and meander.. oh and check out the amazing houses around the square. Lovely. If you want a place to eat nearby, head to The Montague pub.

The gardens are also right by Albert Park shops where there are lots of places for cake, tea, coffee, food, fashion and my favourite book store in Melbourne. A hidden gem.
A well laid out park. With a kids playground and bowling club. A nice area for a lunch break when its fine.
