Lake Annand Park

Toowoomba, Toowoomba Area

Set on two hectares, Lake Annand is a pleasant water attraction and well-used recreational space set along Toowoomba's East Creek.

A bikeway passes through the park and follows the route of East Creek right through to Queen's Park, close to the city centre.

Well maintained barbecue and playground facilities are another popular feature. You'll see a New Zealand influence in some of the plantings and park design - the lake features a pulsating fountain, reminiscent of the geysers; a simulated lava flow has been fashioned in one area of the park, and distinctive plants such as flax add to the theme.

Where there's an attractive expanse of water, there will be ducks, and Lake Annand is no exception. A boardwalk at the lake edge, and a handsome curved bridge give youngsters (and the young-at-heart) hours of pleasure enjoying the antics of these handsome birds, which paddle towards anyone who might throw them some bread.
