VIEW ACROSS PYMMES LAKE FROM THE MOUND
An appeal to everyone: never ever pour cooking oil, engine oil, diesel, builders waste, wastewater from car washes and carpet shampooers and the like into rainwater/roadside gutter drains as it all ends up untreated in our rivers, and in this case, Pymmes Park Lake. This kind of pollution often leads to a slow and agonising death for the waterfowl.
Because of COVID-19: Pymmes Park playground
is closed indefinitely
The recently developed wetlands in Pymmes Park (2015) has two great features: one is improvement of the water quality both in Pymmes Lake and the the adjoining Pymmes Brook and two it's ability to unite people with nature.
THE CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND
ENTRANCE GATES AT SILVER STREET (west side)
Pymmes Park; where there is always something for everyone
Take a leisurely stroll around the many winding footpaths that surround The Wetlands, Pymmes Lake, yacht pond, lawns and sports field. Whether you want to go for a casual stroll (or run) or need a secure playground for the children, a field for your dog to run in, wildlife to watch, Pymmes Park really does have it all!
We are very sorry to inform you because of the Covidvirus the playground has been closed to children and adults and it is advised that visitors to the park refrain from using the outdoor gym equipment because if people have the virus and use the equipment, you may be in danger of getting the virus as well.

PYMMES 'YACHT' POND
What to feed waterfowl in the Yacht Pond and Pymmes Lake in Pymmes Park
For those who like to feed white bread please STOP as it is doing too much harm and encouraging rats which cause Weil's disease.
At the moment the lake has no swans because we had to call the Swan Sanctuary to remove them because the water was too polluted and it was harming them. If we are lucky enough to have them returned and the water is no longer polluted and you wish to feed the swans, washed and chopped lettuce and wheat bread are preferable. But never feed mouldy bread to any wildlife as it is harmful to all birds.
