We love Willen! Loads to do for every age.

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 ;-)

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.

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.

We had visited Willen lake before, but only walked part of the way round. This time, a full circuit of the North Lake led us to discover the beautiful peace pagoda and Buddist centre. While most of the activities and eateries are based around the South Lake, it is well worth the walk around the less busy North Lake .

There is a good assortment of shops and amusement areas for families. Food and drink facilities are well catered for and there is even a train that... More
