Although Wimbledon Park Lake may be only twenty acres in size, it is put to fantastic use by the Watersports Centre where in 2010 over 20,000 kids and adults were able to get on the water with a wide range of boating and sailing craft. The program run by the London Borough of Merton is managed by professional trainers as is recognised by the Royal Yacht Association, the British Canoe Union and is authorised and approved as a young persons' activity centre accredited by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority.
Part of this most impressive deliverable is the facility to support the disabled in experiencing boating and sailing. Special equipment is used to transmit a wheelchair bound sailor from their chair to their boat. In addition, a newly purchased motorboat with a drop down bow can take wheelchairs and minders on a cruise around Wimbledon Park lake and further afield.
For more information please visit the LBM Watersports Centre on the lake or telephone: 020 8947 4894
Please help to keep the park tidy by using the litter bins.
