Location - Town: Fendrod Lake, Llansamlet, Swansea
Location - County: Swansea
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.
Size: Medium / Large
Shoreline access: Limited
Toilets / Shop / other facilities - please list: There is a small car park next
to the shore, but this has a 2m height restriction.
Open Public Access: Open access
Local model boat club: yes
Any restrictions? (Noise, speed, etc): None
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.
