There are so many different, beautiful elements to Fagan Park - that one visit is unlikely to allow you to see them all; especially as some sections are not open every day. On this, every time you visit you'll likely discover something new as you explore the 55 hectares of this impressive space.

One of the best features of the park, which everyone should make sure they see, is the Gardens of Many Nations series. These gardens are all designed to reflect a particular culture, and they include Australian, Dutch, African, South American and North American spaces. Fortunately, they're all open every day (except Christmas Day, when the whole garden is closed).

Another beautiful spot is the lake. It sits beside a very large, open grassy space.

Just inside the Arcadia Road entrance (there's two entrances in total, with the other being off Carrs Road) is the eco-garden. A team of volunteers maintain this space, with their work showcasing sustainable, environmentally-friendly gardening techniques.

Near the eco-garden is Netherby Cottage; the homestead of the original Fagan family, and the Rural Museums. These are all open every Tuesday and the second Sunday of each month, as well as during the annual Bushland Festival in September.

The gardens and the heritage space are pretty special, but Fagan Park does have all the basic features you need too. There are plenty of tables and BBQs for family events (large ones are available for hire), and a huge playground that can cater for many groups of children at a time.

Rating: 10/10

Where: Arcadia Road, Galston.
Why: For a special event; a play at the park; a walk or cycle along the many paths, or for any other reason.
Cost: Entry is free, but parking in the two car parks costs $5.00.
When: Open every day except Christmas Day, from 7am until sunset (or 6.30pm Daylight Savings Time).

Good for kids: Definitely
