About the neighbourhood
Bala is instantly recognisable by the tree-lined, broad High street that stretch towards the four mile long lake, at the South Western side of the town. The main street is always busy with a multitude of cafes, restaurants, traditional trading shops including two award winning butchers. Two miles north of Bala is The White Water Centre,- great for an adrenaline boosting ride down the rapids in an inflatable raft. The lake near town is a little more peaceful, and used during the summer months by sailors, windsurfers, canoeists or just for paddling or splashing about -the eastern end of the lake is shallow and safe. Bala golf course is located half a mile from the town centre, and due to its elevated location has absolutely amazing views of the lake and surrounding area.
