The 8.5 hectare park was created in the 1920's with a 1 hectare in size lake with a 1 kilometre shoreline.
1926 the lake was created, with community co-operation, by damming the Sandy Creek which flowed north-westerly to the Mullum Mullum Creek. It was an area of mud, fallen logs and grasses which now provides alternative habitat for wildlife as well as passive recreational opportunities.
Community groups and individuals have contributed both time and funding towards the Park's preservation, including recent works to enhance the cultural value of the park.
The significance of the park has been highlighted through the preservation of the local history, pleasant naturally significant surroundings and by hosting annual festivals.
