Lake Esmond was originally a quarry for Eureka Tile Works until 1982. The park was named after the discovery of gold and Eureka Stockade leader, James Esmond (1822-1890). It was officially opened on 6 June 1988. Lake Esmond is 20 to 30 metres deep over an area of 1.8 hectares; the surrounding parkland is nine hectares.
