“Beautiful park with good facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

Amazing walking tracks, nice and clean BBQ facilities, multiple playgrounds for kids, plenty of seating, gorgeous lake... winnnnning!

I have been coming here over the years and it's always clean and the gardens are always perfectly tended to.

The toilets were a bit manky today, but it was very busy all day so it is understandable.

“Nice picnic spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

Some friends took us to this lovely parkland in Melbourne's eastern suburbs and I remember it as being well landscaped and maintained and very peaceful. I think that was mid week though. I have not been for a while. It had good picnic facilities and is very suitable for families. There is of course a lake as the name suggests with lovely walking tracks. Parking is inside the park too which is handy when carrying one's picnic things.

“Great park for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

We went here on a hot day as there's some trees to provide shade. The park provides good picnic type facilities and lots of adventure playground equipment. Downside is it's a bit hilly!

“Scruffy suburban park”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Unkempt and way out in the suburbs -- car or bus trip. Don't bother - there's nothing to see. The map is wrong -- it's in Templestowe.
