Southsea Canoe Lake

This is Southsea Canoe Lake, as I mentioned in the previous post. Plenty of events happen around and on the lake during the summer; you can hire a giant swan to float around (!), the Portsmouth Model Boat Display Team are frequently down there late in the summer afternoons.

Located at the Eastern end of the seafront, the lake isn't really that big but its location is quite nice - trees down one site and a well kept park with flowers throughout the summer. There are seats there on which to relax and enjoy the spectacle of model boats flying up and down the lake as well as a childrens play area just far enough away to not be disturbed by the noise.

The lake has been a popular part of the seafront for many years.

You can clearly see the flower beds and the 'giant swans' on the lake.

I have lived in Portsmouth all my life and I have rally enjoyed seeing it with fresh eyes. Can I also recommend going up the tower if you still haven't visited it.
