One park, many uses

IMG_5189

Travancore Park was originally part of the wetlands and marshes that bordered the Moonee Ponds Creek.  The Creek was subject to regular flooding and at times billabongs formed in what is now Travancore Park.  Following white settlement, Travancore Park formed part of the extensive landholdings of Hugh Glass, squatter.  When Glass’ opulent mansion, Flemington House, was established, Travancore Park formed part of the gardens, which were purported to contain animals as varied as emus, kangaroos, deer, llamas and camels!  In the 1920s, Travancore was subdivided and Travancore Park formed part of one of the selling points of the estate – a 9-hole golf course!  Today, Travancore Park is popular for cycling, exercise and playing with dogs.  What do you use Travancore Park for?
