A beautiful, central area of Lake Treeby, for all ages of our community to enjoy.
Beautiful Green Space
Stunning mature trees have been retained around the natural lake to provide effortless beauty and immediate shade. Under and near several of these trees will be beautiful open grassed areas that provide views across the lake.
There will also be barbecue and picnic facilities where you can socialise with friends and family in relaxing green space. Adding to the beauty and lining the surrounding Avenue will be beautiful Jacaranda Trees, showcasing luxurious purple flowers.
To encourage and enable physical activity, the lake design includes the following:
- A 327m lake perimeter walk circuit around the lake for people to walk or jog.
- An area of peace and wellness, with an exercise deck and open grass. Here you will be able to stretch, do yoga, read a book or just simply relax. It’ll be located near the gentle water cascade.
- Open kickabout areas to have a few kicks of the footy or soccer ball.
- An adventure and nature play zone.
Relaxing By The Lake
Above some gentle cascades leading into the lake will be some decking and a boardwalk, where you can appreciate the lake. In all, there are four areas around the lake with decking to stop and enjoy the view.
A fifth area includes waterfront seating and our unique Community Tree, with views across the lake.
The relaxation area includes
- Gentle cascades
- Bridges over water
- Wooden deck suitable for stretching, meditation, pilates or yoga
- Flower seats
- Seat of repose
- Informal log seats.
For the kids, there will be an adventure and nature play zone with shade structures. Within this area are some more barbecue and picnic facilities, so kids can play whilst adults can socialise.
The adventure zone includes and central extensive play structure with angled climbing nets, a raised net bridge, a wobbly inclined bridge and two slides for different age groups. Other features of the zone are:
- Dry river bed with water pump
- Stepping stones and balancing logs
- Cubby with chalk board, stools and a spinning puzzle
- Basket swing
- Activity boards.
Of course, the kids can still enjoy riding around the lake, kicking a ball, walking across the gentle cascades or climbing a tree.
Please note the lake is not suitable for swimming. We also recommend people do not climb around the rocks at the edge of the lake, as these are loose and potentially slippery.
General Recreation At The Lake
For general recreation, the lake will include shade structures, picnic tables, seating, viewing decks, a chat corner with seating and the lakeside boardwalk.
For parents and kids, there will be a parents corner with soft finishes and toddler balancing items, the adventure and nature play zone as well as grassed areas.
Lake Plans & Timeline
Our lake is a natural lake and already exists. However, the surrounding landscaping and planned facilities are what we will develop to enhance the beauty and usability of the space. See below for the proposed plan for our beautiful lake.
