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

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

I have visited Willen Lake many times, with friends and family. This is perfect in the summer to take a picnic and camp up next to the lake for the afternoon, plenty of space for the kids to run around and theres often an ice cream man during the summer. The park is also very well equipped to entertain the... More

Went to the Parkrun here and the place is lovely. Well sign posted. Nowhere near cars. Good car parks. Pretty lakeside with lots of wildlife. Well kept. Recommend a visit.
