The sun was shining, the small train was great fun and the staff were really helpful, checking the boat before we went out.

Lovely break from the sprawling city of Milton Keynes. Very pleasant walking all around taking up to an hour to get around depending on you walking pace.

Lovely to walk around the lake if it's a nice day. Couple of places to get coffee. Good play area if there are kids. You can ride you bike around it too, if that's your thing

The lake is nice but given the Car Parking charges there is not enough there to justify it over any of the other lakes in Milton Keynes. Will not bother going back.

Good walk around the lake, about 3 miles at a guess, appears to be quite a few activities available, and a cafe
