Never been here before and didn't know it was here until looking for somewhere to walk. Didn't take long so did it again in reverse. Lovely facility for young mums.

What a lovely walk when the sun is shining... We took some special duck and swan food and made hundreds of new friends...ok, most were Geese, Ducks, Swans, Coots, Moorhens and a gazillion assorted chicks, but that is ok... A nice boardwalk section that is relatively new keeps you away from the busy main road and plenty of shade around the lake is good to have when it is hot. Free to use and the car park is currently free as well, so all good.

petersfield lake
May 2021
Very clean open recreational space. Suitable for all ages, from small children in
the playground to walking all around the perimeter of the lake. Plenty of wild life to be seen
masses of ducks and swans, boating is allowed on the lake. Good place for a picnic and
to relax and spend a few hours in the open.

Excellent Morning Walk Around The Lake
May 2021
It is many a year since I visited the Lake, so I was pleased when a group of friends suggested a circuit before moving into the town for lunch. Views are stunning, with the expanse of the Lake itself and the distant views of the Hampshire Hills. Waterfowl in variety with some unusual feathered residents add to the enjoyment. A circuit is over a mile, so there are health benefits as well

Pleasant Walk.

Pleasant Location for a walk, good footpath around the lake itself although a little muddy around the heath area. Play area for the kids. Parking available at the lake of nearby in the town.

November pre-lockdown walk
Nov 2020 • Friends
A lovely pretty place to enjoy a day out, walk around the lake in the autumn sunshine. The paths were easy to walk on, maybe a little uneven for a wheelchair in parts. Lots of bird life to see. A children’s play area with lots to play on. Take a picnic and enjoy the view or get a snack and warm drink at the lakeside cafe

Our walk of choice
Oct 2020 • Couples
We live in Petersfield and love the Town. The Heath is just great for a walk, a picnic or to take the grand children (when CV19 doesn’t prevent it!). Well managed and the new boardwalk is so much better than the old one.

Even better than before !!!
Sep 2020
As regular visitors, before the pandemic, my wife & I were finally confident to visit the pond again this morning. We were really pleased to see all the work that has already been done with plenty more to follow. The new boardwalk has made such a massive improvement with visitors now able to walk comfortably along that stretch of the pond. One way system seems to work well, in most areas, but would benefit from a few more signs around the pond. The new wildlife islands are a welcome addition & were well populated by a whole range of birds who seem happy with the new surroundings.
Well done to everybody for making Heath Pond an even better place to visit than it was before & I'm sure will attract many more visitors - Thanks

Nice lake and heathlands.
Aug 2020
We have visited Petersfield several times, mainly the shops and never knew it had the lake. Currently there is a lot of work going on to increase the biodiversity of the lake. Dredging deeper sections, island rebuilding and mainly shore rework. It started in January 2920 for 12 weeks........still ongoing so I think C-19 May have affected the work!! The walk around the lake is not long but really nice with a lot of birds to see. There’s a play area and sating and a cafe. Currently a one way system is in place around the lake and the broad walk bridge. However it’s not easy to spot so could be improved. Where we walked in from we went the wrong way until we got to the bridge and had to choose a different route!! The heathlands behind however are also worth exploring. We were there for a few hours walking and taking a break for a cuppa where we has several birds come up to us for food 😊.
