I have grown up with the 'Lake' as us St Albans people call it. I played there as a child and took my own children there. As my children grew up I forgot how good the 'Lake' was until we took our grandchild there, and once again looked at it through the eyes of a child. The countless different types of birds and ducks, and the joy of feeding them from your hand. The amount of herons now on the bigger of the two Islands. The amount of space that she could run around in, the swings, the little cafe with fresh made food and good coffee. You are central to the Abbey (as we call it) The fighting cocks, the museums, the hypercaust ,and theatre (just over the road), the waffle house, (a good lunch can be had there) You can see the Roman walls.You are within walking distance of the town. What more could anyone want on a lovely spring day? When the trees start to come alive again, finding the 'sticky buds' of a horse chestnut tree. Looking for the nests and the babies on the river and the lake.
Certainly when the summer comes we shall be taking our grandchild for picnics and to play in the water park, just as my children and I did. In November we will take her to see the fireworks there.
You don't have to take children and we often go just to enjoy the serenity of the 'Lake'. It is a place for all ages.
Yes I had forgotten how good it was, but not anymore. A must for people to go and spend time enjoying the space and it is 90% free!!!!!! can't be bad.
