Johnstone Park, on Geelong's western edge, is a favourite haven for shoppers and workers. Once a swamp, then a dam, the area was transformed into a park in 1872, the idea of Mayor Robert de Bruce Johnstone.

Johnstone earned a reputation as the 'parks and gardens' mayor for his support of the Geelong Botanic Gardens and of its curator Daniel Bunce. He served three terms from 1865 to 1867 and had the park named after him for his efforts to beautify Geelong.
