Located off Bridge Street Creswick (250metres on the right side going up the hill), enter into the Mount Prospect Tennis Association grounds and follow the track around to the right hand side (20 metres) of the grass courts. The grass tennis courts make an excellent backdrop to this beautiful picnic spot.

Note that Park Lake is situated around 100 metres to the south of the playground and picnic facilities, and can be accessed on foot down a fairly steep incline with two paths that contain rugged steps, or approached by road from the Castlemaine Road. Close by is the historic Park Lake Rotunda - an ideal undercover picnic spot for groups and families.


A great picnic spot. Serene and peaceful. Two BBQ facilities and picnic benches. Great for swimming and fishing as well!
