    Wonderful πŸ˜„
    I have just enjoyed a walk around this lake today...the weather was perfect. There were lots of people enjoying their time here, some were chatting with friends and family whilst enjoying a cuppa from the cafe, some were walking their dogs, and there were a group of men racing their model boats..everyone seemed to be having a nice time. There are plenty of benches around this lake, and plenty of free parking, and closer spaces for the blue badge holders. They have recently refurbished the childrens play areas with new equipment, which looks to have the approval of the youngsters. There are toilets and a nice cafe here.. with outdoor seating. A definite place worth visiting. Just perfect πŸ₯°

    A lovely place
    Cwmbran Boating Lake is such a nice place and I come here with my family here often, most of the time in the summer when the weather is nice and there's lots of people around. There's lots of playground equipment for the children to play on, benches with tables to sit down, and even a stand where you can buy ice cream. There's a lake there too so you can walk along and feed the ducks. Recommend bringing food and drinks as this is a great place to have a picnic! Though I've moved house so I don't live that close to this place now, I still like to visit it to spend some time with my kids and partner.

A visit to the Cwmbran Boating Lake is a must for anyone visiting the area. We visit every weekend and sometimes during the evening in the week after work. With lots of green open space, a play area for children which is very large and has many toys, a big walk around the lake, and a small cafe which serves great takeaway food, there is not one bad word to be said about this beautiful lake

The boating lake is one of my favourite places.
It’s a peaceful area with a large lake sometimes full of birds, which you can walk around.
Large grassy areas for playing, picnics or just walking through.
A small cafe with some seating is ideal for coffee, ice cream etc and catching up with friends.
A lovely place.

Lovely scenic walk right on my door step. Plenty of fields to take the dogs in and you can even stop off to grab a coffee or an icecream on your way round the lake. My grandchildren love the paddle boats that are out in the summer days.

Nice place to wander with kids or dogs. Very scenic. Lots of wild birds to feed. Wouldn't bother with the cafe, expensive foe what you get. Β£5.20 for two hot chocolates that tastes like hot milk and took an age to prepare.

Nice walk around the lake with kids play area and dog walks. Approx 1hr is all you need for this . River runs along part of the walk and a snack bar is on sight with toilets. Easy parking with loads of space.

No complaints about the food and drink but customer service is shocking. Can’t even make a smile and if something is wrong with the order, you have a very unwelcoming response. This truly lets a very nice cafe down.

What a beautiful place.
Fantastic to walk around but try to buy a few ice creams with a Β£20 note and you'll get told they don't accept the old version which IS legal tender.
Totally unnecessarily embarrassment caused by people not knowing what is and is not legal tender. Will NEVER go back to that shop!
