Opposite a Bunnings on Warrigal Road is a hidden gem of a park. Karkarook Park doesn't look like much from the outside, but drive in and you''ll find an environmental oasis, full of native flora and fauna. An artificial lake is popular for kayacking and canoeing, and you can also try your hand fishing for rainbow trout or red fin. Runners and walkers enjoy the four-kilometre path around the lake and through wetlands and bushland at all times of day, and kids are kept entertained by an adventure playground. There are several covered picnic areas with free barbecues, which are quite popular on weekends. There's plenty of open space for dogs to run around, too, to keep the entire family fit and active.
