The main lake at Westport Lake is the largest body of water in the city. The site also has a smaller lake, grassland, and a woodland conservation area. Westport Lake is well known for its water birds and is popular with walkers and anglers. The site was designated as a Local Nature Reserve in July 2004. There is also a children's play area, with an array of exciting play equipment. Coming soon! A new environmental visitor's centre.
