The Dandenong Valley Parklands are a magnificent network of parks that run along the Dandenong Creek from Boronia Road to Wellington Road.

The parklands include Jells Park, one of Melbourne's most popular metropolitan parks as well as Koomba Park, Nortons Park, Bushy Park Wetlands and Shepherds Bush.

The Eastlink Track now connects with the Dandenong Creek Trail allowing cyclists and walkers to enjoy many kilometres of trail networks through wonderful bushland.
