OVERVIEW

Blue Waters Lake Reserve in Ocean Grove is a unique habitat wetland surrounded by houses. Approximately 7.4 hectares in size, the reserve supports a mix of native and introduced vegetation and many native bird species including eight listed under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988.

The unsealed path that circumnavigates the lake is popular for daily exercise, family walks and bird watching, and the grassed areas of the reserve provide a space for tranquil picnics beside the water.

Blue Waters Lake Reserve plays an important role in the Ocean Grove drainage network, filtering pollutants and nutrients from stormwater before it makes its way into the Barwon River.

In 2002 the first Blue Waters Lake Masterplan was developed and its now time to hear from you on what you enjoy about the reserve, what you value and how you use the reserve .

The City will use this and other information to help shape a Discussion Paper followed by preparation of an updated Masterplan that will guide the management of the reserve for the next 10 years.

We invite you to provide your feedback by completing our online form below.
