We visited friends at the lake, and were all delayed due to a full parking lot. The toilets were clean and we enjoyed our teas and coffees at the cafe. The lake views were lovely, and it is a great place to spend time with friends and family!

A lovely area to sit, relax and eat dinner from the Vegan Buffet :). This was my first visit to the lake and will definitely go back to enjoy the sunset again. A great, well used family & community area. Good to see so many people using the walking track.

The lake is a great venue for the runner, walker or kiddies to play, with two areas around the lake to venture too, your spoilt for choice.

My kids love this place and it's a place we visit weekly (2-3times a week) it has a bit of everything for most ages (1ish-teenage) the water play system has got to be the best attraction for the park, and the walk around the lake is beautiful lots of nature around

At an average pace it takes 45 - 50 mins to walk all the way around. Very well used by all ages of people. Picnicking, playing games and just sitting.Watch out for those not looking where they are going, they are probably looking for Pokemons. I was quite concerned about the number of dogs not on a lead and being... More
