“Surprising visit - lovely peaceful nature reserve.”
Review of Jubilee Lake

Having not visitied Jubilee Lake for many years, it was such a surprise noting the changes. The park has been updated with a wonderful new children's play area. There is now a tearoom available at weekends and the park grounds are now well maintained. The pleasant surprise was Canadian Geese walking about with eight young fluffy chicks. This is a nice relaxing park now with fishing facilities and makes a lovely picnic stop for families. I will go back again.

It's more a large pond, with a gentle walk around the perimeter. Often, there are coarse fishing groups dotted around. An island in the middle of the lake gives the ducks sanctuary from cats etc, and a long greensward, set with picnic tables provides the non-fishing folk with space to rest. Near the car park, there is an outdoor play park for children, newly refurbished, and the latest addition - a small tea room is open at peak periods. There are walks around and near the lake for more intrepid visitors; the rest can sit and watch the view, and sip their tea.

Apart from a sign that says Jubilee Lake you would never know this was here as the entrance is on the main Wootton Bassett to Malmesbury road. There is a small car park here which can get quite full when the weather is good but it is free parking so that is a benefit. You have to walk for about 5 minutes to get to the lake itself although the walk is through a wooded area which is very picturesque and has a number of streams running through it, Although there is a slight incline, even if you are a little bit unsteady on your feet or unable to walk far you should be able to manage this. The wooded area has many different specie of tree/plant etc and if you are lucky you may get to see some of the wildlife that live in there. The lake itself is quite large and you can often see a number of fishermen there although they do not get in the way and it is easy to walk around the lake without any difficulty. There are swans and ducks on the lake and we often take some bread with us to feed them. You can walk all around the lake as it is circular and there are ample seats dotted around for you to stop and have a sit down or just to take in the view and the scenery which in the height of summer is definately worth a look. There are a few picnic tables at the lake should you wish to use these although even as a regular visitor we have never taken advantage of these as we feel that an hour there is sufficient for us. The whole area is clean and well maintained and a good place to go for just a walk or to take a dog (as long as you keep it on a lead) and it is also a free attraction so definately worth a visit if you have a spare hour and you enjoy walks and scenery.

A very picturesque little spot - to my mind the lake area resembled Monet's garden without the irises and lilies. It is a good place to spend an hour or so on a sunny day, walking round the lake and chatting to the friendly anglers sitting around the edge. There are several paths down to the lake - some following a nature trail. When we walked back we took a wrong turning and found ourselves in the middle of a housing development instead of the car park!
