Once a favourite spot for aboriginal corroborees, the area is now a beautiful park, centred on the Ululah Lagoon. In 1852, the first land sales were held for the new town here, in a simple slab hut. Horse-drawn scoops were used to clear the lagoon to form Maryborough’s first water supply in 1859. The lagoon is now surrounded by a walk and cycle path which is also frequently in use by the abundant wildlife who make the lagoon home. ANZAC Park being Maryborough’s major playground contains a skate bowl, children's fort, flying fox and other play equipment, barbecues, picnic facilities and toilet blocks. The park also has facilities for visitors with a disability including a liberty swing.
