Bill Carroll Reserve
It is named after the late Dr W.S, Carroll, a prominent advocate of environmental protection in Merricks Beach. The Reserve provides an educational resource and is a pleasant place to experience the natural environment of Merricks Beach. Its lagoon provides a safe habitat for frogs and waterbirds which can be observed from the secluded bird hide. The Park is a popular centre for community events such the annual picnic day and the annual easter egg hunt. All work in developing and maintaining the reserve is carried out by volunteers overseen by the BCR committee.
