The surrounding countryside is ideal for gentle walks and there’s a good path, suitable for buggies, with benches along the way, from where you can enjoy a view across the lake. Created by gravel extraction in the 1980s, it now offers sailing, canoeing and windsurfing and has a café open in the summer.
Walk from the far end of the car park and you’ll join the route of the Blackwater Valley Path along the north bank of the river. Follow the river until you reach the Moor Green Lakes bird hide and, just before here, turn right to return via the activity centre. The hide is for members only, but there is a screened observation point where you can take a peak at what’s going on on the neighbouring nature reserve.
