Taylor Park

Taylor Park

Taylor Park is set close to the ocean and the busy shopping centre of Torquay and offers a little oasis in central Torquay. Many locals use the park for peaceful walks, or picnics. The popular Torquay Bowls Club is located in the midst of the park as well as an RSL memorial.

There are several short walking trails which weave their way through the park past many ponds, picnic areas and a small playground. Taylor Park is a small natural haven located in the centre of the ever expanding Torquay.

Heritage

Taylor Park has a long and diverse history in the Torquay community. The Torquay Museum Without Walls historical group wrote a fantastic recall of the history of this site which can be read here.

Environmental volunteer groups in the region

The Friends of Taylor Park are an informal volunteer group who work collaboratively with GORCC to perform weed eradication and revegetation in Taylor Park, Torquay.

The group works to keep the park to a high standard for tourists and locals alike, removing fallen bark, invasive weeds and other tasks as required to beautify the area.

The group emphasises the social enjoyment of volunteering with a morning tea and a chat at every working bee.

Working bees | Second Saturday every month (except January) 10.00am
