Hill’n’Dale Park

Ashburton Creek is now channelled underground. The creek formerly flowed from Ashburton (around Liston Street) to today’s Ferndale Park in Glen Iris Road – where it joined Back Creek before flowing into KooyongKoot (Gardiners) Creek at today’s Nettleton Park.

Today, walking tracks follow the course of the former creek in a parkland environment.


Hill’n’Dale Park follows Ashburton Creek on either side of Summerhill Road, Glen Iris. The park lies partly in Glen Iris and Ashburton.

Relevant Friends’ Group

ACBC (Ashburton Creek Biodiversity Crew) is a small and welcoming local Friends group that has been caring for the Hill’n’Dale Park in Glen Iris/Ashburton, controlling weeds and carrying out significant revegetation along the line of the former Ashburton Creek (now channelled underground).

The Crew meets every Wednesday at 8.30am along the Creek. The ACBC is always happy to welcome new members. One key objective is to encourage beneficial small birds back into our suburbs through appropriate planting.

The group is working closely with Boroondara Council developing a long term vision for the corridor.
