Bonview Wetland / Ruffey Lake Park

Doncaster is a safe and quiet area. For leisure, a weekend gym or golf playing is definitely a great option. There are several green parks in the area. Bonview Wetland must be one of the great destinations as a major reserve in the area. Ruffey Lake Park, with no doubt, is the biggest urban park including a riparian strip of native bushland around the creek, areas of pine trees planted by early settlers and pockets of fruit trees remaining from past orchards.
