Frog Hollow..suburban Melbourne

When I was growing up in Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs, what is now named Frog Hollow was just wasteland.  The area had been set aside for a freeway to be built.  For more than 20 years it sat there unused, unloved.  Once the freeway was completed they began developing the land around it into a footy oval, lake and walking/bike paths.  From east to west there is probably about 2-3kms of path.  Dad discovered it a few months ago and has been walking there often.  He now rides his bike too.   Mum and I walked there one day so she could show me how it had changed.  It’s really nice now and very peaceful even though it has a freeway overpass built above it.  I’ll definitely be walking around there again once the weather warms up.
