Things to do in Watermead
Watermead is a great place to visit, especially when the sun is shining, enjoying a relaxed drink outside on the bandstand. You will also find their ever-hungry ducks who aren’t too shy to come up to you searching for food. It is preferable to feed duck food which is available from pet stores. They eat bread, but by the end of a sunny afternoon, they are so full that they tend not to fight for food!
Walk around the lake
You can take two routes around the lake, and there is a surprising range of birds that you can spot. As well as the usual suspects; barnacle and Canada geese, mallards, coots and moorhens, there’s a ton of little gulls and swans. A perfect place to have a picnic with your family, feed the ducks or just a leisurely stroll. Look out for activities and events that take place now and then.
