This lake is beautifully presented and maintained. Excellent parking and access to lake. Ideal for mobility scooters, wheelchairs etc. Nice wide clean pathway looping around the lake. Lots of tables for picnicking. Plenty of bird life. Great visit.

Plenty of car parking, picnic tables and rubbish bins, pathways for walking and bike riding. We stopped by in the car to eat a picnic lunch and watch the waterfowl in the lake. A lovely, quiet spot in the middle of Masterton town.

Fantastic venue for a first-ever regional dragonboating regatta. Great for viewing races. Lots of wildlife to enjoy watching! Not so keen on all the duck droppings though! And understand algae bloom is a problem in summer. Water level of lake could be higher. Beautiful setting...More

A great place to walk and run. There are extensive walkways including a conservation area. The lake itself is used by dragon boaters and kayaker's. There is a small kids playground

Very good place for bird watchers. Lots of these feather creatures in the ponds, in the wetlands. And even a bird-watching tower is on place. Plus there are numerous picnic spots and a boat-shed. I really enjoyed my walk there.
