  • There is no need to book! Just turn up and enjoy your day out with friends and family

It was an amazing experience. We had a lot of fun. If you are in London don't miss this. The guy JJ at the place is the best, very kind and helpful.

Nice lake, and plenty of boats to hire meaning no queues but there was plenty of litter in the water which should be cleaned up... A big plus was the spotting of some huge fish in the water.. Always nice to see.

It's a nice large park, boating - only rowing boats. Nice big pond to row about.
Nice big playground and lots of grounds. Was no queue for the boats. Plenty of parking at different entrances, make sure you get to the right entrance, depending what you want to do.

Had an absolutely great experience on a sunny Sunday afternoon on the lake, which sadly ended with us getting drenched in a very unpredictable rainstorm!. Were served by 2 very polite gentlemen who gave us towels gave my daughter some spare dry clothes and we were able to dry off. Really great service, simple but effective setup and lots of wildlife to see. 5 stars!
