BBQ and picnics

Barbeques are very popular at Willen Lake, so we have a designated area located adjacent to Car Park B. This area features dedicated barbeque stones that should be used for placing your disposable barbeque on; please do not put them directly on the ground.

We want you to enjoy Willen Lake, but not to put other people, wildlife or the park itself at risk from fire. There are many areas of uncut grass at Willen Lake because it is a great resource for insects and wildflowers, however in the summer this grass becomes very dry and a spark from a barbeque could lead to a serious blaze. In addition, disposable barbeques leave burnt patches if placed on the ground and are often discarded, becoming a litter problem.

The designated area is marked in yellow on the map above.

If you cannot find the designated areas, please ask any of our staff members and they will be happy to help you.

Please take note of the following rules:

  • BBQs and picnics are currently only permitted for groups of up to 6 or two households, in line with government guidance.
  • Please follow social distancing guidance at all times.
  • Gas powered barbeques or stoves are not permitted anywhere at Willen Lake.
  • Alcohol cannot be consumed at Willen Lake outside of licensed premises

We are not taking any bookings at this time.
