This would be a great activity to do for exercise or for a family outing with small children. There's lot to see and you can do the whole walk or just turn around when you are ready.

Loved the bird hide. I go here early morning to take photos of the beautiful scenery and bird life. The boardwalk is a great place to have some fresh air and exercise and its not to hard to do , being mostly flat. I hang out for hours in the bird hide taking photos sometimes and its very peaceful and picturesque.

This is probably one of the most enjoyable lakes if you like a quiet and peaceful stroll. Access is easy, and the path pleasant to walk on - even for folks with prams and disabled chairs. We go there often. Faults: motorized boats should not be allowed -especially on weekends - and more car-park space should be made available. Perfect for a pic-nic though!

This walkway is short and can be done by everyone. It follows an easy trail and boardwalk away from the housing area so is very peaceful. The lake is stunning on a lovely day and the water so warm for a paddle. There are composting toilets near the end of the walkway. A short wee gem in the area.
