Located off Somerton Road Greenvale, the Cypress picnic area has two large, flat, grassed areas on both sides of the carpark popular with large groups for picnics and games.
These areas have numerous picnic tables, two pavilions and good views over the reservoir. The pavilions have level, gravel floors and standard wooden picnic tables with bench seats. There are two barbecue areas that each have two barbecues.
Water is available at the barbecue area.
