Shaftesbury Lake, Swindon.

Shaftesbury Lake, Swindon can be found in-between Park South, Park North and Eldene. It’s enjoyed by residents and other nearby housing estates. Visitors love it because it’s very pretty and you can feed the ducks or take a stroll.

It’s looked after by the volunteer group, the Friends of Shaftesbury Lake. They are lead by Pam and Gail who have a shared love for the lake. Together, they decided to do something to improve the area and they really have done an amazing job!

The lake has a small waterfall and many benches to sit on to relax. If you’re visiting with little ones, there’s a playground for children of different ages. The small hill next to the park is well known by locals. At the top of it, you can see for miles around the local area.
