J C Trotter Memorial Park is traversed by flat easy to walk tracks and consists of varied vegetation including casuarinas, melaleuca, grass trees and scribbly gums and typically has a good variety of birdlife. One leg of the circuitous route runs parallel to the shoreline of the Tingalpa Reservoir with access to the water side to view any water birds that may be present at various points along the way.

A good level of fitness is required for this outing as this is an approximate 4km walk.

Meet at the entrance to the park at 130, Cherbon Street, Burbank, 4156 (UBD 203 K7). There is limited parking in the Memorial Park carpark but ample parking availability on Cherbon Street, just outside the park gate.

There are no toilet facilities here.
