Volunteers and Emerald Lake Park management
Emerald Lake Park is managed and maintained by Council, with the help of local volunteer group Friends of Emerald Lake Park. To find out about the park's future management read the Emerald Lake Precinct Strategic Plan
Flora and fauna
The park is home to both native and exotic plants, with fern gullies and open eucalypt forests. The ornamental trees are spectacular, and some significant trees are National Trust-listed.
You might see lyrebirds, purple swamp hens, Eurasian coots, ducks, dusky moorhens, kookaburras, rosellas, echidnas and black wallabies. Many animals that live in the park are nocturnal and can be harder to spot during the day.
Friends of Emerald Lake Park
This volunteer group of local residents work in the gardens and landscape the park. They hold regular working bees and work with school groups planting and weeding the bushland areas. New members are always welcome.
