Batman Park is on the banks of the Yarra River, which runs through the middle of Melbourne. It is named after the explorer John Batman who founded Melbourne. On the other side of the river is the convention heart of Melbourne, which includes the World Congress Centre, Casino and Exhibition Centre. The helipad helps serve some of the visitors to these complexes, while the park provides an open relaxation area. The helipad can be quite busy, as shown by the presence of helicopters in this picture.
