“Nice place”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Spent around half a day there. Enjoyed paddle boating, pony rides and cycling with my kids. A great place for sit and relax too.

“Good place to chillout”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Its a huge man made lake with surrounding hills & great promenade to walk, run, cycle, or just sit & relax. Also if you like, you can try the water boats to get get right in the middle of it. its a huge place & you can easily spend couple of hours to cover it, or if you like to read good book by the lake, there are plenty of spots to just sit on a bench & while away time. you could also end your day with sunset view at the lake.

“Major tourist attraction disappoints”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Lake Gregory was supposed to be a major tourist attraction in "Little England" It was disappointing as the lake is not well maintained. The walkway around the lake (whatever little of it exists) is patchy and poor.

“few activities”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

This location has boat riding, bicycling, walking, and picnic activities. It's good to go there when the weather is good for outdoor activities. Wear some warm cloths as it's windy and cold. Also there is an excellent Strawberry cafe in front where they offer so many variations of berry meals.
