Emerald Lake and it's surrounding park is one of my favourite places. We will quite often visit here on a weekend drive and just relax in all of nature's beauty. It is so joyful to watch families of different ages enjoying the many facilities including BBQs, covered picnic areas, play and exercise equipment, swimming in the public pool in summer, and aqua bikes on the lake. Puffing Billy steam train is a major attraction for many but for us it is really just the beauty of the surrounds. It is just so relaxing and pretty in every season and you are also allowed to take your dog as long as it is on a leash which is definitely an added bonus.
