Belgrave Lake Reserve was the site of the reservoir and pipeline that supplied water to the town of Dandenong from 1893 to 1924. The Reserve was also associated with the Belgrave Auto Camp which came to existence in 1939 on land adjacent to the Reservoir. The original Kiosk and the log cabin now named as the “Log Cabin Museum”, of the auto camp still remains.
Today Belgrave Lake Reserve serves as a conservational park as well as a recreational park. It helps maintain the biodiversity of flora and fauna in the region. The park that is centred around Monbulk Creek supports the eco system that ensures the survival of a number of species like platypus, water rats, sugar gliders and bandicoots. The reserve has an abundant bird life.
There is an onsite playground for children and a walking track for a family stroll. The Park has BBQ facility.
Address: 46 Park Dr, Belgrave, VIC
There is a dog off lead area, Picnic Tables, BBQ Facility and Toilets
