“This is a great place if you can...”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

If you are going as a couple be prepared to find a quiet spot there are plenty but this place is filled with kids and teenagers that are loud and sometimes annoying. There's plenty to do down here the canoeing is a lot of fun and feels safe. With plenty of food/drink and ice cream on offer you will never go hungry or thirsty.

“A great local resource”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We frequent the boating lake quite often and really do enjoy it at every visit. Our most recent was for the excellent Cwmbran Big Event which filled the boating lake with activities and fun for all the family.

Parking at the boating lake isn’t the greatest – especially for events such as this, but given parking is free its hard to criticise.
The boating lake has lots to offer, from a superb play-park and skate park, to boat rides on the lake, football fields, pleasant walks and a great place to run. If you’re active then you can walk freely between the boating lake and north & south fields giving you about 8-10km of walking/running space without traffic.

The onsite café is reasonably priced and serves good food and the Llanyravon shops are a stones-throw away, as is the crows-nest pub if you fancy a drink or two. Another nice touch are the BBQ stands so you can take your own BBQ to the lake and enjoy making other people hungry with the awesome smell of barbecuing food!

Its a lovely, clean open space for the children and animals to enjoy a run - such spaces are becoming increasingly rare nowadays to lets enjoy the ones we have!

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Looking for somewhere to take a stroll? Pop on down to The Boating Lake, beautiful, calm and pleasant is but a few ways to describe the boating lake. Ideal for families and young children, or even for a BBQ with friends in the summer months.
