Coburg Lake Reserve
This historic and picturesque park offers a number of outdoor amenities, as well as beautiful walking trails.
A verdant oasis awaits those who visit Coburg Lake reserve, just a short stroll from the suburb's centre. The sprawling park, an erstwhile bluestone quarry worked by prisoners from the adjacent Pentridge Prison is home to many walking paths, bike trails, two playgrounds and public gym equipment, all centred around the picturesque Coburg Lake. It's also a great spot for a barbecue with a number of public grill stations dotted around the park, while a public bocce court is an ideal spot for a post-lunch activity.
The reserve is home to a large colony of ibis, while you can also expect to see ducks, water hens and mallards. The reserve's range flora includes mature native and exotic trees, which provide beautiful shade along the meandering walking trails and open green spaces.
