These two reserves are located in beautiful Willow Vale, in the northwest of the Gold Coast local government area. The reserves are accessed via Ruffles Road, from which they derive their name.
These reserves feature typical Gold Coast gum forests. You'll see tallowoods (Eucalyptus microcorys), grey gums (Eucalyptus propinqua), pink bloodwoods (Corymbia intermedia) and brushboxes (Lophostemon confertus), to name just a few.
City parks are dog on leash unless otherwise indicated.
There is a lovely recreational trail that winds its way through this and neighbouring reserves. Download the maps below:
