Culture and heritage

Lysterfield Lake was once a storage reservoir for the Mornington Peninsula from 1936, until it was no longer required for water supply due to the opening of Cardinia Reservoir in 1975. During the period up to 1965, farmland adjacent to the lake was acquired by the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission to protect the quality of the water. In the early 1980s facilities were developed in the park to cater for a variety of recreation activities. The park was opened to the public in November 1986.
