Description

Named after Murtoa’s most prominent doctor and long-resident family, the park has been largely developed by the now-defunct Apex Club over many years. The hard work of this group has seen a wasteland and swamp become a delightful area for public use to the immediate North of Lake Marma. There are very attractive treed surrounds, jetties, bridges, a playground, BBQ and new toilet facilities with tourism information. The Park also features the re-located 1896 Murtoa Railway Station footbridge spanning the lake narrows and a well-used, large Skate Park for those inclined. There are made paths and plenty of space to enjoy.
