Apex Park - Lake Weerlara

Apex Park is a large, fam­ily orien­ted park featur­ing a small lake, wide grassy areas and a range of play and sport­ing equip­ment.

There are half-court basketball and netball rings, a twin-pole corro-cord climb­ing net and a junior skate bowl suit­able for beginners. A mini football oval with goal posts adds to the range of activi­ties avail­able.

Several sculptures surround the lake and in­form­ative plaques de­scribe some of the local history.

The main feat­ure of the park is Lake Weerlara, a small and attract­ive lake skir­ted by reed beds and shady trees, with an abund­ance of nat­ive waterbirds.

Several sculptures surround the lake and in­form­ative plaques de­scribe some of the local history. Re­stful benches are dot­ted about for en­joy­ing the view.

Lake Weerlara is classified as an Aborig­inal heritage site, and for­mer gather­ing area. Events such as the Lockyer Com­mun­ity Fam­ily Fun Day help main­ta­in the im­port­ance of the area to the local com­mun­ity.

Apex Park is loca­ted near the large roundab­out at the ent­r­ance to Albany. Con­veni­ent park­ing is avail­able just off Parker Street. Please take care with small children due to the water hazard.
