|Rosebery Park, Epsom, Surrey
Purpose built model boat pond. Medium sized. 100% access, concrete edge.
There is a picture of it on the Park's website
It also appears clearly in Google Maps just south of Ashley Avenue in the town centre, but it's so green that at first it's hard to spot.
No parking except for the town centre multistorey and Ashley Avenue on a Sunday.
Trevor Smith reports that it is very shallow near the edge so only suitable for r/c. There are large weeping willows that hang their branches into the water - a hazard to shipping - but they are sometimes trimmed back. The water is rather dirty and there is a lot of duck poo about so it is not surprising that it is not used much.
