Good parking access and lots of activities. Great place to spend time away from the beach. Ideal for a picnic.

Free to enter. Free play area, splash pool, crabbing in the lake, feeding the swans. All the old fashioned things that little children love. And model boats on Sunday too.

I used to live in Portsmouth as a child and use to visit here to sail model boats. As a child you always think things are bigger than they are but even as a adult it is really quite a large boating lake. Worth a visit to see the model boats on the lake if the various clubs happen to be there. Some of them of the model boats are really impressive.

My husband is Portsmouth born and he remembers Canoe Lake from the 1950's! I remeber taking our children to visit their Grandmother and going to Canoe Lake in the 1980's. Now we go with our Grandchildren! It has become even better over the years. Play park, Zip line, splash pool, model village all free! Parking on the prom or in the car park is metered. The swan pedalos are good fun and a reasonable price. South Parade Pier is nearby and is worth a visit, too.
