Lake Annand - South Toowoomba
Address: Long Street, South Toowoomba QLD 4350
Lake Annand is one of Toowoomba's feature parks. It includes a large man-made pond that has been landscaped into an attractive water area including a fountain.
The tranquil man-made lake is a focal point of the park and this combined with the lush green lawns and gardens surrounding it makes for a beautiful park outlook.
This coupled with barbecue facilities and children's play areas, make the location a popular one for picnics, get-togethers and small events.
Lake Annand toilets are being replaced with a new toilet block. The work is expected to be completed by 30 April 2019, weather permitting. To allow for the work to proceed, the current toilet block and adjoining pathway will be closed from 25 March 2019 until 20 April 2019. During this phase, temporary toilets will be available within the precinct. Parking along Bright Street is recommended for people with mobility issues. Bright Street runs parallel to Long Street.
The park has large and small gazebos, water features, toilets, barbecues and inter-connecting paths.
As a part of the East Creek park corridor this park joins with East Creek 4 Park to the north and East Creek 5 Park (Joseph Leadbetter Park) to the south. The walking and cycling paths are popular for recreation and commuting purposes.
