Dogs are welcome at the park with two designated dog off-lead areas. Dogs must be on a lead in all other areas of the park. Please observe park signage. Off lead areas are highlighted on the park map (PDF, 1MB).

Changing Places Facilities

The changing places amenity has been developed due to a lack of provisions within standard accessible amenities, people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as spinal injuries, spina bifida, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis or an acquired brain injury, often need extra facilities to allow them to use the toilets comfortably.

This facility includes:

  • Accessible toilet
  • Automated changing bed
  • Automated ceiling hoist



Non powered boats (max length 4.5m with a keel depth of up to 1m) are permitted on Lillydale Lake.

For more information on sailing restrictions please contact Melbourne Water on 131 722.



Fishing is permitted at Lillydale Lake. Suitable areas and fishing jetties are highlighted on the park map (PDF, 1MB).
