Walk Description

Lake King was formed in the late 1860s. Its original purpose was 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 sculptures. Lake King is stocked with Yellow Belly and Redfin and is a perfect spot for the kids to learn how to fish, take a picnic lunch or enjoy a BBQ with friends. Whilst no swimming is allowed, the nearby Rutherglen Swimming Pool is open during the summer months.
