Overview

Lakes Entrance Foreshore Park is an open reserve located on the north side of Cunninghame Arm, in close proximity to The Esplanade and the town centre. The park is bounded by shared paths in the east and south providing connections along the foreshore as well as to Ninety Mile Beach via the pedestrian bridge adjacent to the site. There is a large car park to the north and a rotunda to the east within the Esplanade Reserve.

The Lakes Entrance Foreshore Park has been identified as requiring development for improved recreation use. This includes the provision of;

  1. Playground,
  2. Paths
