We regularly visit. Great for a walk, great to walk the dogs and part of one of my running routes. Good facilities but the parking is a rip off, would probably use it more and put more money through the cafes/pub etc but parking does put you off

The lake has a lot to offer for everyone, A brisk walk or jog, a serene sit on a bench, watch the water skiing, watch the cyclists or just chill, a nice relaxing place

I like this park, it has two large lakes next to each other separated by a track. It is generally flat and you can walk all around the lakes doing a figure of 8 if you wish. The park is landscaped with various hilly mounds in sections. It is mostly made up of green grass and no flowers. There is... More

This is such a beautiful, scenic lake, and I love walking around the lake with my dog or on my bike. If you get the chance, visit the Peace Pagoda. It is so special, and on particular days you can even go inside the temple to see the monks practicing meditation. Around the other side of the lake is a... More

Great lake, obviously well looked after and used by bike people, runners and lots of lake sports. Lovely on an early morning for a quiet walk !

Living locally, I use the place regularly. It is poorly maintained for most of the year, with most events taking place in the summer.

The lake itself is nice enough, however the parking is a bit expensive. You have a couple of places to eat at one side of the lake and a hotel if you want to spend a night or two. LA Fitness gym is excellent but I do not know if you can go in if you are not a member.... More

There are a few bits and pieces to do here, from the watersports (paddleboats and wakeboarding), to the aerial adventure course. There's a nice Weatherspoon's right at the entrance of the lake, too, which is great value for a few drinks or an afternoon meal. The lake itself has a few tracks going around it - great for bikes or... More
