Edinburgh Gardens

Edinburgh GardensAlfred Crescent, Fitzroy North 3068
Melways ref: 2C, D1

Edinburgh Gardens, located in the heart of North Fitzroy, is approximately 24 hectares in size. The park has a number of facilities, including barbeques, tennis courts, a basketball court, playground, table tennis table and sports field.

Edinburgh Gardens is the former home of Fitzroy Football Club. Games were played from 1883 on the sportsground now known as W.T Peterson Community Oval. The grandstand surrounding the oval dates back to the late-19th century. Other historical features include a stone drinking fountain, period park light fittings, a rotunda and war memorial.

You'll find plenty of open lawn areas, shady and sheltered spots, structural formal avenue plantings and a pathway network connecting the surrounding networks and park facilities. Edinburgh Gardens is easily accessible by public transport, with Brunswick Street bordering the west side of the park. It also provides access to the Main Yarra Trail.

Fitzroy Tennis Club Upgrade

Council will be improving facilities at the Fitzroy Tennis Club in February and March 2013.
The $250,000 project includes replacing the three en tous cas courts with synthetic grass.

Energy efficient lighting, new fencing and additional landscaping works are also included in the scope of the works.
The works, which began on 21 January, are expected to take eight weeks to complete, finishing in mid-March.

The temporary fences around the site will limit pedestrian and cyclist access to adjoining paths.
Council apologises for any inconvenience.
