We've visited here a few times over the last few months. There is plenty of parking but becomes very busy on a sunny weekend. Parking prices are reasonable. The lake is big to walk about but a good path so not muddy and can use bikes and scooters. Lots is ducks, swans and geese. There is a great play park... More

Willen Lake is a beautiful park. It is a great place to visit to walk the two beautiful lakes and soak in the beauty of the lakes and surrounding park. There is so much space and many things to do. This park is great for young families with excellent safe playgrounds. Also this is great for the fans of fitness... More

Went here on a Tuesday during the school holidays. My daughter went on the Aerial Extreme course and I took my two grandsons on the lake in a dragon peddle boat for half an hour. We had some lovely icecream from a static vendor. The lake has a surfboard machine that drags people around. Very entertaining for observers and probably... More

We regularly visit Willen Lake and absolutely love it. My son always asks to go there because of the large park and I love running here. Something for everyone - duck/bird feeding, pub, aerial extreme, picnic areas, park, beautiful scenery, nice cafe

Very busy here today around the more popular lake, but the walk all the way round was lovely...as always. A great place to come & do an easy family 4K walk round both lakes, before or after your Sunday lunch/dinner. The children enjoyed an ice-cream from the van. Very busy for parking today. The new splash zone for summer looks... More

Willen lake is a wonderful place for all ages, but I would suggest you don't forget to walk around both lakes not just the one that is most popular. The second lake has a maze, stones like stone henge but a lot smaller and wildlife. The second lake is quieter than the main lake that has wake boarding, kids play... More

I had a great walk around here. It was very peaceful. On a nice day it would be even better. I'd highly recommend it.

I've ran round Willen Lake a number of times but different dimension with 2 x 4 year old twins learning to cycle! Great flat paths around the whole of the 2 lakes. The north lake is a lot quieter (away from the pub and cafe and play area on the other lake). Would definitely recommend

This is a very pleasant park / lake area. With a good circular route - popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists alike throughout the year. The Eastern shore could perhaps do with a wider path, due to all the users. On the Western shore that is the case, as a NCN passes through part of the area. There are many... More
