Richmond is a suburb of Melbourne, 3 km South-East from Melbourne’s Central Business District.
Richmond was named after Richmond Hill, London, with its outlook of the river bend. Richmond is well known for its vibrant and popular Little Saigon area along Victoria Street.
Richmond Town Hall is a landmark building currently operated by the City of Yarra, which was built in the 1880s and redecorated during the inter-war years.
Richmond does have some parks and gardens and reserves, however, they are notably absent in the main centre of the suburb. The largest park is Citizens’ Park (Richmond Oval), bordering on Church and Highett Streets.
