Emerald Lakes Parklands

Emerald Lakes Parklands playground

Emerald Lakes Parklands is a beautiful, large park in Emerald Lakes. It's perfect for an early morning walk, picnic or for the kids to ride their bikes. A fully fenced all abilities playground is a highlight of the parklands.

The playground is built around an all-inclusive ramp structure, with slides, climbing webs, interactive play panels and chillout zones. It is fully covered by shade sails and natural shade from the parklands. The parklands can get quite wet after heavy rains.

There are various parking bays along Emerald Lakes Drive as well as the walking paths.

The Parklands is home to the Emerald Lakes Gourmet Food and Crafts Markets.

Note: Dogs must be walked on a leash unless otherwise stated and are totally prohibited in all children's playground areas.

Enter the Parklands through the intersection of Birmingham Road and Emerald Lakes Drive.


Access for people with disabilities includes a pathway through the parklands, disabled parking spaces and an all abilities playground.
