A wonderful rehabilitation of this Lake over the years, clear water, abundant birdlife in a wonderful natural setting. A great place to roll out a picnic blanket otherwise take a casual or brisk walk around the perimeter of the lake in a wonderful fresh environment.

Much bird life with swan & ducks looking for a free feed. Parklands on southern shores are very well developed & maintained with easy access, northern shores have been left natural

Catch the Joondalup line train from Perth and alight at Leederville station. Walk about ten minutes east along Grantham Street and you will be there. Enjoy and take a drink with you.
