Lake Annand Park Information
Lake Annand is a pleasant water attraction which has been created along Toowoomba's East Creek. At just two hectares, Lake Annand Park is one of the more compact of the city's recreation spaces.
The development of the park has been carried out along carefully planned lines. There is a New Zealand influence in many of the plantings and features. The lake itself showcases a pulsating fountain, reminiscent of the geysers familiar to those who have visited New Zealand. A simulated lava flow has been fashioned in one area of the park, and distinctive plants such as flax add to the theme.
Where there's an attractive expanse of water, there will be ducks, and Lake Annand is no exception. A boardwalk at the lake edge, and a handsome curved bridge, give youngsters (and the young-at-heart) hours of pleasure enjoying the antics of these handsome birds, which paddle towards anyone who might throw them some bread.
A bikeway passes through the park and cyclists often pause here on their ride to enjoy the atmosphere. This bikeway follows the route of East Creek right through to Queen's Park, close to the city centre.
Well maintained barbecue and playground facilities are another popular feature.
