Great place to visit. This place has a car park that you can pay £3 to donate towards the park as it's free entry. It's a long walk around the whole recreation ground and myself and my family absolutely enjoyed it!!! It has a nice coffee shop at the entrance and other small stop overs like benches to sit on...

Fantastically beautiful place, peaceful, tranquil, wonderful for nature. Can't find anything bad to say. Free entry but you are asked to make a donation for the car parking. Overall - wonderful!

Can't believe we'd never visited this gem of a place before! The nature reserve is a great place to be quiet & enjoy the beauty of creation. Lots of hides to sit & watch birds. A visitor centre with interesting displays & cafe selling drinks, ice creams & cream teas! The 2 mile route is buggy & wheelchair friendly. We'll... More

This is a gem of a place, easy walking in the main, lots of birds, waterfowl and wild flowers. Lots of places to sit and study the birds. No entry fee, but suggestion donation of £3 for the car park.

College Lake Nature Reserve is beautiful. A lake in the middle of nature itself. A pure delight! There is something for everyone. Exhibitions, flora and fauna. A must see

what an interesting place, as long as the weather is good. Went there with our 2-year old grandson who enjoyed seeing the sheep and birds. Very nice cafe for coffee and cake

A great place for all, we took 3 grandsons, 9,7,4 and armed them all with a small pair of binoculars book and pencil and they had great fun looking at the birds and checking them against the board of visiting birds. They had a great time walking round the grounds and looking at all the various sets laid out in... More

I love college lake. It's such a peaceful place and a beautiful walk with so much nature to see. Only criticism I would have is that there's one part of the walk that involves stairs, so it makes it quite difficult with prams. Lovely though

Our school had a fantastic school trip to College Lake. We were very well looked after by Claire and Catherine when we visited with our year ones and year twos. The content of the activities was age appropriate and proffessionally delivered. The ladies were all extremely patient with all of the children and knowledgeable about their field. The pond dipping... More
