JOHN CROMPTON RESERVE

Public BBQ

Situated next to a peaceful lake, this charming park offers a delightful retreat complete with a small sandy beach. Kids will surely enjoy the well-equipped playground and with public toilets, a shower, and plenty of picnic tables available, families can comfortably spend the day here. Parking is ample and dogs are welcome, provided they remain leashed. Shaded by a good number of large trees, visitors can cool off or even picnic under a comforting canopy. For water enthusiasts, the calm lake invites for a refreshing dip or paddleboarding, and is also suitable for beginners learning to canoe. Be mindful of possible wasp presence during picnics.
