Melbourne Day Walks

Jells Park

October 17th, 2010 at 11:56

Length: 2.9 km (Complete walk is 5.2 km, but I only walked part.)

Time taken: n/a

Grade: Easy

Climb: 17 metres (as measured by RunKeeper)

Jells Park has a surprisingly remote feel considering it is in the middle of the suburbs. The lake circuit is quite pretty (if you ignore the power lines :)) and quite popular with walkers. There were plenty of birds around the lake, and even a bird hide to watch them from.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do the complete walk on the day I went, but I did walk a circuit of the lake which is the main part. I am hoping to go back sometime and walk the complete 5km route.

The water level was quite high, almost above the jetty.

This bird was happy to walk quite close to me

Some nice flowers I spotted in the car park
