A lovely tourist spot, right in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent. The lake, circumference one mile, is surrounded by bushes and trees. Wild birds (water fowl) inhabit the lake. The visitor centre is well-appointed and accessible. The Green Door project has made available various cycles for transport around the lake at low cost. With the canal passing one side of the...

Plenty of parking. Good visitors centre. Well maintained path all around the lake, though beware of the goose poo. The conservation area is lovely. There is a children's playground and you can also access the walk along the canal from Westport Lake.

We go here regularly, the children love the different birds, and the play area. The geese are very friendly and will approach you, which my children enjoy but might scare others. There is a visitors centre with cafe, and clubs and groups are run during during school holidays. There is an ice - cream van on site during sunny days.... More

Such a lovely walk around the Lake after you've been to the visitors centre, a gentle stroll to burn all those calories off.

I visit here many time in a month, never bores my. There are always lots of people who call here for running, cycling or just a pleasant walk to feed the many many wild fowl residents. But be careful they are very used to being feed and will nip at your fingers. There is a lovely play area for the... More

A great way to unwind at the weekend. A stroll around the beautiful lake followed by a piece of cake in the cafe overlooking a beautiful scene. Brilliant for all ages. Picnics/casual walk/kids etc.
