First time to Blackburn Lake after hearing about the bird life etc. The walk was easy as the paths are wide and well maintained, the lake we found to be unappealing with a couple of Pacific black ducks and the area described as wetlands was...More

A lovely spot to walk and talk. Many different paths; a lovely lake to sit beside and ponder. Far from the crowds in nearby Forest Hill Shopping Centre.

I have not seen any. This park is more about nature. You might try 806 Canterbury Road Box Hill South - there are some climbing bars there.
