Albert Park

With over 226 hectares, Albert Park offers plenty of space for you to walk, play and relax with your dog.

Albert Park is mainly an on-lead park but there are some designated off-lead areas where you can give your dog a good run. Dogs are permitted in most of the park, but must be kept on a lead in some areas and kept out of dog exclusion areas (including the lake and the playgrounds).

Dights Falls

The park's best known geological feature is Dights Falls. Dights Falls is an artificial weir built on a natural rock bar across the Yarra. The weir was built in the 1840s to provide water to the 'Ceres' flour mill, one of the first in Victoria. The Dights Fall Loop Walk highlights the rich history and versatile landscape of Yarra Bend Park.
