An easy walk round looking at all the beautiful wildlife and plants. There are some stepping stones at one side of the lake that can be awkward for pushchairs. There are several different routes you can take other than just going around lake.

There is an open water swimming club that use the Lake. They can be found on line. I used to swim in it in the 80s but it is not generally encouraged now.
