Kirks reservoir park
|Large grassed area||Tables and chairs|
As one of the regions most exotic gardens, Kirks Reservoir Park is our most picturesque asset. Situated just 10 minutes drive from the Ballarat CBD, the park has ample parking, free undercover BBQs and toilet facilities.
The rotunda and surrounding gardens are ideal for wedding ceremonies (free, bookings required), and there are excellent learning opportunities for children and school groups to find out about the importance of water with the Outdoor Education Centre.
The entrance reservoir park is on the Daylesford-Ballarat Rd. Get there by taking exit C292 from the Western Hwy, or from Ballarat go via Victoria St (C805), turn left into Water St (C292), then turn right onto the Daylesford Rd exit.
To improve public access to Kirks Reservoir Park, Central Highlands Water will be undertaking road works at the park entrance from Monday 22 April for approximately six weeks.
During this period there will be limited car access to the reservoir park and decreased parking. The reservoir park will remain open during this period.
