This lake and the surrounding park is located in the centre of the town of Askern.

It is a pleasant place to fish and as the water has tarmac surrounding it also makes it very suitable for anglers with disabilities. There are toilet facilities on site and also a café from where day tickets are purchased.

Boat hire: £4
