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.
