2. Lake

Dip your toes in the water, watch the birds or simply go for a stroll around the lake and enjoy its peaceful atmosphere. BBQs and seats are available in this park.

3. Skate Park

We saw several young children having a great time whizzing around on their scooters.

4. Elwood local shops

This is a lovely spot for a walk - there is plenty of shade, seats and the traffic travels at a slow pace. I love window shopping here. Good spot for food, fashion and other stylish things.

5. Random art

Great to see that Elwood is not immune from street art!

6. Rubbish bin

An odd location for a rubbish bin - in the middle of a footpath! No doubt it was moved from the edge because of the bus stop, Might be more suitably located somewhere else?

7. A little girl's fairy tree

"This is a very special little girl's fairy tree". What a treasure! A tree lovingly decorated by hand made toys, paper butterfly and colourful sign.

8. Roundabout cafes

Around this roundabout are a handful of cafes that are certainly very popular on the weekends! These magnificent trees and plantings make the street look fantastic.
