A lovely large reserve in the centre of Oakden, with the Lakeside Cafe situated at the edge for meals or drinks. The grass is always green thanks to a very clever water system underground which can be read about as you walk around the reserve on the dedicated paths for bikes and pedestrians. There are 2 large ponds full of ducks and water birds and plenty of shade. A public toilet has been installed recently making it a great location for a picnic or BBQ. There are several BBQ’s located throughout the reserve along with bins and benches. A small playground can be found at the back of the reserve with a more diverse playground a 2 minutes walk away at the next reserve over. We take our dog for walks there and let the children ride their scooters. There is plenty of local community members strolling through at any time of the day and are loved by pets. There is a Coles and Woolworths shopping complex’s within a 4 minute drive to pick up any snacks or drinks you may need and off street parking is available around the whole reserve.
