"fabulous suburb with parks and tree lined streets"

While I visited it was one of the wettest days in recent history. However, the charm and feel of the area was clear. This is a nice place to live.

During the day on the weekends it is nice and quiet, and very little through traffic on the streets making it a great place to raise a family. Its not a long trip into the city and the area is serviced well by public transport. There is a lot to like about Glen Iris.
