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.

Reflections Cafe is open weekends, public holidays and school holidays. Group bookings for meals / functions are taken all year round.

In the interest of water quality, pets are not permitted. Group areas may be reserved for a fee by phoning the Ranger. The myriad of wildflowers and fresh growth bloom during September until October all over the 600 acres of Parkland.

Note: fishing is no longer allowed at the lake.

The Park is free to enter and is open everyday of the year.

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.
