Lake Leschenaultia is a manmade lake constructed in 1897 for the WA Government Railway, to water Steam Engines at the Chidlow Well Station.
Nowadays it is a recreation area ideal for family and group outings. There are plenty of barbeques, sandy beaches, grassed areas, and pleasant walks where wildflowers can be seen in season.
Stokers Cafe is open Wednesday through Sunday and Public Holidays. It can seat up to 60 people and also provides a canoe hire.
In the interest of water quality, pets are not permitted. Group areas may be reserved for a fee by phoning the Ranger. From December to April anglers can try their luck with the rainbow trout with which the lake has been stocked. The myriad of wildflowers and fresh growth bloom during September until October all over the 600 acres of Parkland.
There is a small entrance fee to enter the park. $6 per car, motorbikes are $3.50, large buses $50, small buses $25, walking in is free.
A five year development plan has been set in motion to broaden the Park's recreational scope, and with $250,000 already spent, the early fruits are already evident. No dogs are allowed.
The lake is 46 km east of Perth. Entrance is via Rosedale Road in Chidlow.
