Description/directions to location: Just off Valley way in the Swansea Enterprise Park. Large, Deep, freshwater Lake. Limited Shoreline access, but there is a small pontoon by the car park and a number of fishing platforms. This lake is also home to swans, ducks an other waterfowl, which causes some muck/feathers etc at the edge of the lake in some places. There is a model yacht club that meets here on Sundays, but I don't have any more information on them.

Anything else to add?: Due to the size and shape of the lake, it is possible for boats to be hidden around corners, but this is hardly a problem. Also there are a few small islands in the lake, which makes this lake unsuitable for unpowered sailing.
