"Quieter than you'd expect with so much so close by."

Briefly, Evansdale Road has a train station at one end and a park at the other and a large range of housing options inbetween and thus an interesting mixture of people from different backgrounds and at different stages of life. We enjoy great facilities at close proximity including the Yarra River and our shopping village with all you need (restaurants, great supermarket pub cafes and chemist to name a few). These amenities are to only improve with more retail, commercial spaces and appartments being built on the main street, Burwood Road. A Bunnings is being built there which is close enough to walk to without giving our street any bustle. The street's entrances are somewhat camoflaged by non 'grid like' town planning which helps us enjoy a relative peacefulness for an inner city location.
Transport is a bonus with train, trams bike paths roads access not to be bettered in Melbourne and the rap on schools is similarly glowing.
In a guide to Boroondara, our park (Morang Road Reserve) is referred to as the Boroondara's most beautiful and contains a cliff face of Basalt that is part of the eastern most flow from the Western District's volcanoes. This has been quarries some time ago and you can see the old drill marks in the stone.
We also have the old Creek crossing under our Road that drains the southern part of Kew and part of Hawthorn,
Many people meet and talk whilst accessing Morang Road Reserve and another park it joins onto along the Yarra River.
The two things I like most about our street are:
1) Commuting by various methods including bike, boat, (yes I row to work sometimes), walking, train, tram or unfortunately sometimes car.
2) Walking to the shops for just about anything I need.
