Recreation upgrades and closures

As part of the upgrade project, all water-based recreation at Ewen Maddock Dam and the Maddock Park day use area are now closed. 

On-water recreation, including the designated swimming and beach area, will be closed as part of the upgrade project from Monday 30 March 2020.

Seqwater has implemented alternate access points to keep the multi-use trails around the lake open during the upgrade. Seqwater has also recently built a new horse float unloading area with Maddock Park to ensure continued access for horse riders during the upgrade.

Seqwater has significantly invested in the Ornamental wetlands picnic area, on Steve Irwin Way to help provide an alternate recreation location during the upgrade. We have recently installed pumps for the wetlands, upgraded picnic tables, resurfaced the access and parking facilities and installed a new toilet block near to the Brew haha Café to significantly enhance this area and make the wetlands a fantastic, picnic destination.
