This is the first and only man made loch I’ve ever seen. The park has many visitors including cyclists, families, people power walking aswell as those having a leisurely stroll and wheel chair users. There are many ducks, swans and wild birds to be seen in the park and also wild flowers. There is also a variety of watersport courses available which cater from beginners to those people who are more experienced. In addition to watersports there are also 2 kids parks which our lot love and race each other to. If you fancy a drink or something to eat the cafe does some great food, I recommend the macaroni cheese and chips ;) Finally,parking is great too, i have been there on the busiest of days and so far have never had a problem getting a space. All round I think it’s a great place to visit.
A popular park with water sports enthusiasts, joggers, walkers, and children (who like to feed the ducks and swans). It’s easy to see why city dwellers would be drawn to this man made reservoir with it’s expanse of open water, wildlife and sporting facilities.
Before moving recently I spent many a pleasurable hour or two at this park feeding the ducks, avoiding the dog (and swan) dirt, and staying away from the wasp ridden bins. The park can get very busy in the good weather and it’s not actually so big as to be able to accommodate them all so it can become a bit of a crush …
Despite the down sides of the park though the kids have always enjoyed feeding the birds and in the absence of anywhere else in the vicinity to feed ducks it’s a must!
A man made loch In East Kilbride. Perfect for a stroll about as its very flat. Dog mess can be a bit of a problem . The kiddies park has just been refurbished which is very nice. Can be very busy in the summer with people having days out. Plenty of parking spaces with disabled--could do with parent spaces. Cafe is lovely and food is good quality. They do a variety of water sports so water is always busy . Ducks love all the bread but watch out for the seagulls--they are viscious greedy wee buggers.
