What to do at Petersfield Lake and boats

Petersfield Lake is a lovely, well kept open space with fishing, boat hire, plenty of footpaths and a fab kids park. The play area is suitable for toddlers up to 12 year olds. There’s also a sweet little sand pit area.

There is also a lovely cafe where you can take a break after all that exploring. Or bring a picnic and set up camp for the day. There are also toilets available.
