What better way to explore the Lake than by hiring a boat and discovering the delights of the wildlife, surrounding shores and the encompassing ancient woodland of Hainault Forest.

Weather permitting.... the Boating lake has rowing boats available for hire and the boating lake is open from 12pm – 5:30pm.  Also, weather permitting the boats continue operating into late September at the weekends.


Come and take a look at everybody having a good time on and off the water....

One hour    - £20

(Boat hire maybe subject to a £5 Deposit which is refundable upon return)

Tickets can be purchased at the boating office  by the boating platform on the lake side and 1 adult must be in charge as children are not allowed out on their own
