Parks and gardens in Melbourne?

I'm looking for some relaxing spots to lay out and read in the afternoons. Are there any great areas in Melbourne that I should check out?

Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne south of the Yarra River, an easy walk from the CBD/Flinders St Station.  So good and so vast, that you could spend a week reading in different spots.  That said Melbourne, and Australia in general, is exceptionally good at preserving and utilizing green space.  So you really don't need to go looking for parks/public gardens.  You'll just come upon them.  Carlton Gardens is another good one.  Visit the Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum also located in the Garden.  And then head west on Gertrude St for some of the best shopping/cafes in the city.  One thing, when are you coming?  You know it's winter here now, right?

I loved strolling through the Fitzroy Gardens.

And if you feel you have walked enough, have a seat, and let the arms of the canopy of trees embrace you in a deep calm slumber. Here, try listening to the sounds of the outdoors, and spend some quiet moments with yourself…

The east end of the city is full of parks - like Treasury Gardens and Royal Exhibition Building also has some lovely spots. Bring something to sit on - if you're going to be here in summer there's lots of bugs. Treasury Gardens are close to the Flinders Ln big foodie precinct so you'll have plenty of choice if you need nourishment. There's also a large food court Collins Pl nearby.
