Middle Park is an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 4 km south of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Port Phillip. At the 2011 Census, Middle Park had a population of 4,058.
It is located between Port Phillip Bay and Albert Park Lake, which is about halfway across the western side of the Albert Park Reserve (a state park), hence the name "Middle" Park.
It is bordered by Canterbury Road to the east, Mills Street to the north, Fraser Street to the south and Beaconsfield Parade to the west.
Middle Park, along with neighbouring Albert Park, contains some of the best preserved terrace house and Victorian architecture in Melbourne and is part of a strict heritage-conservation area. Many of the terraces line Canterbury Road, along the former railway line, which now has several more tram light rail stops since it was converted to tram use in 1987. Others are along the main shopping street, Armstrong Street. The fine old buildings and development restrictions in the area and new developments are generally sympathetic to the prevailing style, driving up real-estate prices dramatically, in marked contrast with neighbouring St Kilda. Recent media reports (Oct 13) state that the mean average income of Middle Park residents is over $100,000 PA with most adults working. The wide street make Middle Park ideal for angle car parking in contrast to other parts of Melbourne. The largest "religious" group in Middle Park and adjoining suburbs is the no religion group (ABS Censis 2011) however Middle Park was the most charitable suburb in Melbourne according to a recent media report.
