Lysterfield Lake safe to swim in

Lysterfield Lake has reopened for swimming.

Lysterfield Lake’s water quality has improved and is now within safe levels for swimming, just in time for the long weekend.

Parks Victoria confirmed on 24 January that testing at the lake had produced positive results, with swimming now deemed safe.

Due to unsafe levels of bacteria in the popular swimming spot, the lake was temporarily closed from December onwards.

ON the Parks Victoria website it stated that “swimming was temporarily not recommended in Lysterfield Lake at Lysterfield Park as recent monitoring showed high bacterial readings in the lake.”

On 4 January, a resident posted in the Hills and Dandenong Facebook Page citing her concern after her family got sick from swimming in Lysterfield.

Though, Parks Victoria has confirmed today that the lake is now safe to swim in.
