Stunning to cycle, jog or stroll around the lake, good fishing I am told, lovely water birds - and rabbits in the parklike surrounds. Lovely to see dads fishing with their little boys. Intimate beach, ideal for the family.

This is the best Lake Park I have visited. Landscape,Lake,Kids Play area, walking tracks, pier everything is really really nice and beautiful here. Little beach is the standout feature of this beautiful place. Kids can have a full day fun time here playing in the beach n play area. Great for family picnics.
