“Fantastic - A Lot More Than Just a Park”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Located at the heart of Llanberis - Padarn Lake is so mush more than just a lake. The park is immaculately kept with swings etc for the kiddies, walks and easy access to the Lake Railway, Slate Works, Electric Mountain and a lot more. Parking alongside the lake is easy and very reasonably priced. The only time parking may be an issue is when there is an event on - like the Snowdon International Race. The lake is very clean and totally unspoilt with both managed grassed areas and more wild grass areas where sheep roam freely. Dogs are of course allowed anywhere around the lake and in the park - but worth watching out for the sheep! It's a fairly easy walk to the Lake Railway, Electric Mountain, Slate Museum and Snowdon Mountain Railway attractions. Being a short walk off Llanberis High Street there is also quick and easy access to the local shops, eateries and craft centre.
From Padarn Lake it's an easy drive up to and along the Llanberis Pass - an absolute MUST when you are in the area. It is AWESOME.

“Drive the LLanberis Pass”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Lovely lake, clean and unspoilt. The little train ride is great for kids. Take a picnic and eat it by the lake as places to eat are few and far between. But you must drive through Llanberis Pass. It is simply stunning!

“Great walks and great views”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Had a lovely walk all around the lake taking in great views along the way - if you go for the £4 all day parking it is a cheap day out!
