I had a great walk around here. It was very peaceful. On a nice day it would be even better. I'd highly recommend it.

I've ran round Willen Lake a number of times but different dimension with 2 x 4 year old twins learning to cycle! Great flat paths around the whole of the 2 lakes. The north lake is a lot quieter (away from the pub and cafe and play area on the other lake). Would definitely recommend

This is a very pleasant park / lake area. With a good circular route - popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists alike throughout the year. The Eastern shore could perhaps do with a wider path, due to all the users. On the Western shore that is the case, as a NCN passes through part of the area. There are many... More

We took our two young children on bikes around the lake on Sunday morning. It was a little busy and a few crashes into people and dogs were had (whoops) but in the main a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The lake isn't too big so little legs (aged 7) can make it all the way around on their bikes without flaking.... More

Nice place to come with children. There is a play area outside and we saw one inside as well, but because weather was good we didn't come in =) lovely views, can feed the ducks) Nice place to walk, very clean. Few restaurants and places to eat and have a drink. Good sized carpark, but need to pay (about 1.2... More

Lovely place but the parking prices are ridiculous! The toilets are awful, you think with all the money they make from parking they could have clean toilets. I'd give it five stars if the lake and toilets were kept cleaner and the parking was reasonably priced.

Great day spent at willen, rode the small train, hired a trike and played in the play area. Loads to do such as boats, water ski and much much more. Take lots of pennies ;-)

Always good for a day out with the kids. So much to do, walking round the lake and feeding the ducks, running round the large grassy areas, and the park there is fantastic. Massive enclosed park with plenty of benches for the adults. Plenty of play equipment for kids of all ages. Theres a cafe and toilets right next to... More
