As the most intact Edwardian period public garden in Victoria, Footscray Park is considered to have historic, aesthetic, scientific (horticultural) and social significance.
With views across the Maribyrnong River to Flemington Racecourse the Park was designed by noted architect Rodney Alsop (who won a competition for its design in 1911).
These plans were implemented by Superintendent David Mathews, from 1916 to 1964.
Facilities include play grounds, large open spaces, BBQs, an outdoor stage, disabled public toilets and landscaped ponds that are popular for wedding photos. The Park also has a designated dog off lead area.
