“Another hidden suburban gem”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We walked around Tomato Lake this morning with our daughter-in-law who is due to have a baby any minute. Obviously, it's a very easy 1.6 k so when we got back to our car, we turned around and did the 1.6 the other way. Lovely playgrounds, BBQs, exercise equipment, seats and toilets dot the path. There's also a café which gets good reviews here on Tripadvisor but was shut this morning and a pretty nature walk through signed native plants. The walk is supposed to take 17 minutes, but you could spend ages here enjoying the surroundings.

“Refreshing scenery”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

I took a Saturday afternoon walk around the lake and enjoyed the wildlife and lake scenery. The walking paths were all in good condition for walking or strollers. A playground for the children, Seating, BBQs and plenty of places to spread the picnic blanket. Lovely.

“Great walk”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We walk around Tomato Lake at least once a week. Many other friendly people also take the walk. There are 2 to do, longest is still under 2km. Seats along the walk if you need to rest. Kiosk open 6 days week, not Tuesdays. Good value and good food/coffee (surprisingly!) BBQs, free use gym equipment, kids play equipment, dog poop bins etc.

“A family place Tomato Lake”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

It is a very central park close to the city. There is a 10 minute walk around the lake. The tiny island in the centre is the home of many birds and ducks. There is a kiosk available. There are large areas of lawn and mature trees for people to have a picnic. The lake is close to the bus service should people not have a car. Easy walk from Orrong Road, Carlisle
