Play Areas

Play and explore.

Enjoy the South West

Our lakes benefit from fantastic facilities suitable for all ages and abilities. Whether you want to explore the lake by foot, bike or boat – there’s something for everyone! Our play areas offer an excellent day out for the whole family, there’s plenty of open space to let your children play freely.


Tamar Lakes

In 2016 we installed a brand new play area at Tamar Lake. The play area features a nest swing, interactive areas, roundabout, a custom slide that can be accessed from the outside of ‘The Frog Hopper’ cafe and much more. The project was kindly funded by SITA Cornwall Trust, Cory Environmental Trust in Cornwall, South West Water, Cornwall Community Foundation and the Lennox Trust. The play area was completed for use on the 30th April 2016 and offers an interactive area for children with a range of abilities.

Keep the kids busy

Enjoy all of the amazing this to do at the lakes with your children, spark their imagination with our free outdoor educational activity sheets. Identify different trees, spot an amazing range of wildlife, complete word searches and much more.
