Really enjoyed the visit! The parking is well organized. Wonderful place to have a outing with family and watching rowing. Best to organize picnic than buy food from the cafe.

I regularly go outdoor skating at this venue, however, check their events calendar before you go as it's a rowing lake and is popular for races and runs etc and is sometimes unavailable. Has toilet facilities and one lap of lake is 5km. Great on...More
