Steeped in Melbourne’s sporting history, Waverley Park, is now surrounded by well-established parkland, recreational facilities, leading schools and shopping centres. Here is our top tips on what makes this suburb buzz.

1. SPORTING LEGEND

At the heart of the neighbourhood is the historic Waverley Park Stadium, shopping precinct and oval. The oval is still the Hawthorne Club’s training ground. Footy mad Hawk’s fans can see their fave’s in action most nights.

2. FOOD & ATMOSPHERE

Food an atmosphere are given equal billing at “The Last Piece” café. The owners want the vibe to be as good as the food & coffee. Originally a coffee pit-stop the venue is now a fully-fledged pizza kitchen. The atmosphere is relaxed & friendly – the only arguments are over “the last piece” of pizza.

3. FASHION CAPITAL

Chadstone shopping centre has a special place in the heart of many Melbournians. With over 500 specialty shops, 10,000 car parks, cinemas and gourmet food court it has something for everyone. It’s only a short drive from Waverley Park – so almost in the backyard.

4. SPECIALTY SERVICE

Whether you have forgotten to buy milk, need a quick haircut or want the convenience of local gym, Waverley Park has a unique mix of specialty services and unique local amenity. Blades of Glory is the local barber; Goodlife Health Club is located at the Stadium and a convenient boutique grocery store can save you from any food emergency.

5 . PARK LIFE
