The Parks of Chermside


The Parks of Chermside stretch from Virginia Railway Station west along Downfall Creek via Heinrich Gerns Park under Newman Road; into 7th Brigade Park to Murphy Road and into Marchant Park; over Webster Road to the very small Lions Park.

Downfall Creek is a wild life corridor enabling birds, land and water animals free movement along it from D'Aguilar Range to the Boondall Wetlands.

Combined Bicycle and Pedestrian tracks cover the entire area and completely circle around Marchant Park.

Exercise gyms, child play areas, BBQ stoves and Toilets are scattered along the tracks and two large off leash dog areas are provided.
