At the edge of the lake is a “classic temple” style bandstand, surrounded by amphitheatre style seating. This was specifically located to utilise the acoustics of sound travelling across the lake.The bandstand was designed by Thomas Mawson and was opened on 1 July 1929. It features an Entablature and has a copper roof.The nearby steps are intended to seat an audience of 2,500 people. – wikipedia
