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.
Hiring boats at Petersfield Lake
Boats are available to hire at Petersfield Lake. There’s no need to book. Just head to the boat house. It’s £10 for 30 minutes which is plenty of time to explore the lake. Under 16s need to be accompanied by an adult and those who aren’t strong swimmers must wear a life jacket.
Make sure you give yourself some time to walk around the lake for some lovely views. It should take around half an hour. The heath area is actually 69 acres in total so you’ll find plenty of trails to explore away from the crowds.
