“Take short walks in the park down a happy trail.” – Frederick Lenz
This is Emerald Lake Park, a 52 hectare gardens and bushland, featuring the beautiful Lake Treganowan. It takes just a little bit more than an hour drive from Melbourne CBD. The park is a good place to go for a stroll, a hike, a picnic with family and friends or even just to have a quiet reflection.
Jack and I went for a walk here one early morning in November just after the lockdown restrictions have been lifted. It was still very peaceful that time of the day but became very busy after we had done our walk.
Through several bridges and walking trails we walked for more than an hour.
It is home to native and exotic plants as well as many animals but were hard to spot during the day. Only the ever loyal ducks were there to entertain us.
The park also has paddleboats and picnic tables…
It also has some murals associated with the area and an olden style amphitheatre.
Emerald Lake Park has amazing shade trees and gigantic Eucalyptus trees.
