Although we once lived in Petersfield, this was the first time we walked all the way round this lake. There are good views to the South Downs, a clear path, plenty of benches/seats to rest a while.

Husband and I been to the Lake a few times this summer. A very pleasant and easy walk. Stopped in the cafe about half way round for either an ice cream or coffee. Car park is free which makes a change

This is a great place to come for a walk, cup of hot chocolate in the café, to feed the ducks, ponder life etc. Also good for kids and dogs, and fishermen. Very refreshing views.
