Lake Ellen Park Bundaberg
Lake Ellen Park Bundaberg
It’s not hard to spend a few hours at Lake Ellen Park. This large park has equipment catering for children of all ages and abilities. We love going here in the cooler months with friends. We set up a picnic rug in a sunny central position and let the kids go for it while we catch up. This park can be divided into four areas, two playgrounds, bike and scooter tracks and lake and walking tracks. Shade sails cover the play areas so your Wide Bay Kids and the playground equipment are not exposed to the sun.
Kids will love the themed areas of this playground. Drive, climb, and slide through the sugarcane train, scamper to the top of the spider web, jump through the pretend puddles but watch out for the crocodile!……..play shop, and get lost in the mirror maze. There are 3 fort like structures designed for children of varying ages with plenty of opportunities to have some awesome fun. A selection of swings for all age groups are scattered throughout the playground including a liberty swing for wheelchairs.
Lake Ellen Park is really popular for kids birthdays with plenty of sheltered tables and bbq’s. The park boarders a major road and Lake Ellen. There is some fencing on the road side of the park but none leading to the Lake. I found this park really hard work and overwhelming when I had younger children that both wanted to go in separate directions. You can regularly find mozzies at this park so pack insect repellent.
Bike and Scooter Paths
A large area of the park is dedicated to bike and scooter paths and tracks. These paths and tracks are located to the side of the main playground which is great for avoiding collisions with littlies. Kids of all ages love tackling the obstacles on these paths. Also great for skating.
Lake and Walking Tracks
Just to the right of the Park and a 2 minute walk away is Lake Ellen. A small Lake where kids can feed the local ducks and turtles and sometimes catch a glimpse of some model sailing boats. The Park boarders Baldwin Swamp Environmental Park which includes a network of walking tracks, boardwalks and bridges to explore.
Toilets, plenty of shaded tables, shade sails over the playgrounds, picnic areas, bbq’s, water bubbler, great for bikes, prams, scooters and skates, free parking.
Cafe, limited fencing.
