If you fancy a ride on the boats it maybe worth checking to see when they are running again...due to the blue green algae they have been stopped due to public safety but apart from that, the walks are lovely.

Yes, but advise near the playground or gardens away from the lake as the birds will be attracted. Not that many picnic benches so best take a picnic blanket
