They bloom on both Lakes from mid-June to the end of August.
We have picnic tables situated throughout the Gardens.

The Lily Pad Café is on site for visitors to enjoy a wide variety of beverages, food and ice-creams.
There is a carpark for 90 vehicles situated just outside the Gardens on The Balk.
There is also limited disabled parking directly outside the Visitor Centre. Coaches can also park outside the Visitor Centre by prior arrangement.
Should these locations be full, there is a public carpark across The Balk behind the old railway station on Robertson Close.

With the exception of some areas of the Rock Garden, the Gardens are fully wheelchair / pushchair friendly. The Gift Shop, Café and Toilets are fully accessible, and there are viewing areas situated around the Lakes. Wheelchairs can also be borrowed from the Visitor Centre if required.
Our toilets are situated at the rear of the café. We have a disabled toilet and baby change area.
To keep them healthy, our fish are fed a special low protein fish food which can be purchased from the Visitor Centre for £1 a tub. The tubs we use are manufactured from recyclable cardboard and we encourage visitors to return the empty ones to the bin near the Visitor Centre.
