Overview

Lake King was formed in the late 1860s to provide the town’s water supply. It also served as a swimming pool at one time complete with diving board and lighting.

Named after Daniel King, local bootmaker, vigneron and active community member, the walk gives you a great opportunity to view the local bird life and a number of works from the aRTS Rutherglen Scuplture Trail. Lake King is stocked with Yellow Belly and Redfin and is a perfect spot for the kids to learn how to fish. Enjoy a picnic lunch or a BBQ with family and friends.

Although no swimming is allowed, the nearby Rutherglen Swimming Pool is open during the summer months.
