About
Fairhaven Lake is one of the borough's most popular attractions. Nestled between Lytham and St Anne's, a salt water lake, positioned directly on the coast next to Granny's Bay and Stanner Bank. Enjoy the many recreational facilities provided, motorboat, canoe and rowing boat hire. For the less adventurous there is an electrically powered motor launch, enjoy the cruise and enjoy the scenery from the launch on a 10-15 min cruise. Lakeside facilities include a cafe and the RSPB Discovery Centre. The lake is one of the most important wildfowl locations in Europe, with a group of more than 250 Canada Geese, several Swans (including a solitary Black one) and many coots, water hens and other smaller fowl.

Lovely lake with wildlife, on the edge of the Ribble estuary. In the summer season, there are boat trips and water sports here. There is an RSPB shop with some great gifts for bird lovers. Great for walks in the winter.

A lovely spot between St Annes and Lytham. The surroundings are wonderfully maintained and boat rides are great value.

The new (sept 2020 I understand) crazy golf was amazing - really interesting theme on each hole of local landmarks and easy enough to play for younger people without getting frustrating.

It was very pleasing to see lots of development around the park and those involved with the vision should be very proud of the achievements.

This was a lovely location to visit, now it is a fantastic location to visit. There is still the motorboats and the rowing boats, and the ducks and swans. Added to that there is a brilliantly designed promenade, parking, tennis courts, play grounds to little ones and older ones, tennis court (grass & hard surface), crown green bowling and crazy golf. When the new Cafe is finished, we will give it a try too. Ideal all year round location.
