Description/directions to location: Valley Gardens adjacent to Magnesia
Well Cafe. Follow signs for Valley Gardens, just before main entrance
gates (at end of shops) turn left up Valley Drive (steep hill) and will
find a pedestrian entrance about 400 yds on right. Pond is 50 yds inside.
Can park on either side of road but Mon to Sat need parking disc (local
shops will give you one)
I remeber playing with a
toy yacht on this 'pond' as a child (my father came
from Scarborough). It is still there as far as I know, but too
small for a real model boat pond. You can see almost the entire 'lake'
in the photo - I seem to remeber it isn't very deep either.

Paddling pool suitable for smaller and toy boats
Down Coast Road east of town, among the grassy dunes which are known as The Stray.
The Tourist Info Office confirm it's still there:
