Description:

Melaleuca Lake and playground forms part of 17 ha of parks and open space at Jordan Springs. The 6.5-hectare parkland features a 2.8-hectare lake, walking and cycling trail, shaded ‘nature-based’ playspace, picnic facilities and lawn areas. Melaleuca Lake plays an important sustainability role in the community by helping to manage stormwater and protecting natural waterways.

The lake has been designed to capture water run-off and to control flow during storms. Plants in the lake beds are an integral part of a water treatment system that removes sediment and nutrients from the stormwater run-off.
