Loved by locals and visitors and flaunted as the park that ‘has it all’, Ruffey Lake Park is popular for social gatherings and family reunions.

We have three kid-friendly picnic areas which have all the facilities you'll need. Our picnic shelters and barbecues are popular - so it's a 'first come, first serve' basis, with sharing encouraged.

Dogs are welcome at Ruffey Lake Park and there are off lead and on lead areas for you and your furry friend.

There are also some areas in the park fenced for revegetation where dogs are not allowed so that we can keep the park beautiful.
