Willen Lakeside Park

Willen Lakeside Park

Open today from 0800 until 2000

Lovely double lake, great for family walks. Walk around the whole park, both lakes are 5k, but if you haven't time, it's easy to do just one lake.

There are play parks for all ages, which have recently been revamped.

Other attractions include a maze, peace pagoda and outdoor gym equipment, positioned around the lakes.

There is a pub called the Lakeside, which has high chairs, children's meals and a main menu, all good value.

There is nice little cafe, which serves great cakes and drinks. Near the cafe there are public toilets.

The park is well maintained and a popular retreat.

The path surrounding the lake is suitable for bikes and scooters as nice and flat. Near the lake there is a tree rope activity centre called Go Ape. The lake is host to variety of events e.g. Dragon boat racing, colour obstacle runs and fun days.

There is normally an ice cream van strategically parked on warmer days. One of the lakes has wake boarding facilities and the other is home to plenty of ducks and geese. I can't recommend this place enough. There is a charge for the main car park but there is a free car park across the other side of the lake off the V11 or a smaller free car park in Middleton close by.

A lovely place to walk and cycle with an amazing childrens playground including a seperate area for the little ones. A nice little cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, and a great little pub restaurant for main meals. During the summer months you can take a swan pedalo out onto the lake or even take part in wake boarding or high rope course.
