Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely community space with a nice flat sealed walking path. Lots of bird life to see with friendly locals. Bring your camera to get shots of the lyre bird, cormorants, various ducks and other birds.

Lovely lake and easy, short walk around i, very close to main road. I was lucky enough to meet a local who pointed out a golden carp that always swims around the same spot, turtles and a water dragon on a fallen tree in the water, and the spot where usually a lizard group usually basks but didn't turn up today. This is a popular place for locals to walk their dogs. There is a lovely children's playground in front of the lake, and a toilet block. There's also some outdoor exercise equipment.

I will make a point of dropping in here when passing through Mittagong, especially on a lovely, sunny day.

Nice healthy lake, one side is covered in cars but the other side is very green and pleasant. Best place in Mittagong since everywhere else is covered in trucks. Good jump off point for bushwalks. I went up the road and fire trail to Mt Alexandra/Katoomba Lookout. Nice view west to the national parks but the monstrously noisy highway is right underneath, which discouraged me from walking down the other side in that direction, so I returned and went along the low fire trail to the next park and it took about an hour up and back.

Visited while staying at Bowral and it was within 5-10 mins drive. Very popular place for walks with families. Ducks, mallard, turtles and willow trees made our walk interesting.

Delightful venue for a spring/winter/autumn picnic.
Breathe the air, watch the ducks, talk to strangers.
