|Clennon Lakes (1 Jan 2022 - 31 Dec 2022)|
Clennon Lakes is a nature reserve consisting of manmade lakes created by the council in the 1980s. They are the most important wetland site on the English Riviera and home to many species found nowhere else in the Bay. On the lakes, you will find an array of birds including swans, ducks, moorhens, kingfishers, and herons. If you are taking your dog here, the rangers ask that you are respectful and ensure the dog does not disturb the local wildlife who call this home.
The walks through Clennon Lakes include pathways and are mostly flat. During winter, it is prone to flooding so wellies are recommended!
Park your car in the Clennon Valley pay and display car park or take the bus to Clennon Valley and head towards Torbay Velopark. Follow the rocky path between the Velopark and the Torbay Leisure Centre round and it will take you past the playing fields and to the first lake. The three lakes are linked by rocky, flat footpaths. When you reach the third lake, there is a side path which takes you up a steep hill towards Clennon Gorge which is owned and managed by Paignton Zoo as a conservation area. The walk is circular and will lead you back onto the playing fields.
