Enjoy a quiet relaxing walk in Kalang Park along the Blackburn Creeklands, with the Chisholm ACF community group, chat to others who care about our environment. 

Stretching almost 1km from Pakenham to Main Streets, with an area of approximately 9 hectares, this park holds an abundance of features to explore. Accessed through a large network of gravel tracks and narrow pathways along both sides of the creek, the northern section of Kalang Park is largely indigenous bushland.  Glimpses are possible of tawny frogmouths in the crook of any of the large mature eucalypts and galahs and kookaburras can be heard in the trees above.  In the billabong are frogs and in spring, this is a great place to sit and watch the wood ducks swimming with their ducklings.   After rainfall, the ephemeral wetlands depressions that skirt the southern pathway hold water and create a unique and interesting environment.

We will meet next to the playground in Kalang St. 

After the walk we hope you will be able to join us for snacks,  a cuppa and a chat.
