Greenmeadows Gardens

Greenmeadows Gardens is a perfect setting for relaxing and taking the kids to play. The park features beautiful open spaces with shade from large historic trees and was originally the cow paddock of Greenmeadows House estate (1912). Today, it's a popular suburban space and home to a great variety of birds. So, watch and enjoy.

How is COVID-19 impacting our parks?

Picnic shelter and BBQs

The picnic shelter is available for social gatherings. There are BBQ facilities and tables nearby to the picnic shelter to add another element to your picnic. Greenmeadows Gardens are also a very popular location for wedding ceremonies due to the extensive green plantings.
