Central to Circa 1886 is the award-winning Circa Park.
Inspired by W.R Guilfoyle, the designer of Melbourne’s famous Botanical Gardens, today’s local artisans and landscape designers have created a legacy of beautiful gardens, sculptures and outdoor ‘playrooms’ that will breathe life into Circa’s heart for generations to come.
A generous 1-hectare space means that there is plenty of room for kids to run and play, and the innovative facilities and design make Circa Park perfect for spending time with family, entertaining friends, or just taking some time out and relaxing.
Located along Como Parade, near the entrance of the estate, the 1-hectare Circa Park’s gardenesque approach helps create the modern interpretation of the botanical gardens and complements the adjacent historic homestead located at Circa.
Circa Park received the ‘Highly Commended’ award in the ‘Innovative Design Elements’ category at the 2014 Kidsafe National Playspace Awards. The award was presented for the unique “Grotto Play Shelter” installation crafted by Melbourne artists Honeyweather and Speight.
Set in landscaped gardens designed to look beautiful now and in the future, Circa Park also features the work of renowned artist and blacksmith Bent Metal as well as the Rain Gully, a Central Rotunda, and state-of-the-art children’s play equipment.
The planting palette within the park features specimen trees and collections such as those favored by Guilfoyle in his work. With an Oak lawn and Fern gully, family picnics and adventures can take place right in your own backyard.
