After moving to Cannock from Birmingham to enjoy the Chase and Chasewater Park, we are not disappointed. Great place after the revamp and work to the lake. If you enter from the Railway station side there is a mini "beach" where you can put up an umbrella and have a day out with the family. The water is clean and quite fresh and the speedboats do their bit to air the water which is good. The base of the lake is layered with pebbles although some areas are sand but i would recommend entering the water with some or other form of footwear as idiots have broken bottles in the shallow end so glass residue is visible but usually cleaned as well as any litter onshore. If you're unsure how to get to the top end of the park, just use Google maps street view which gives you the satnav postcode. The visitor centre and it's history is very interesting as is the construction and roof used. The shop and toilet facilities/baby change are clean and decent and outside in the car park near the shop is a bicycle rental shop which has all types of bike and tandem for families and the little one.The main area of the park has enough entertainment and play area for young children and a paddle boat rental area also.
