Lakeside Country Park – Swim and run

Mark Sh said:

Last weekend I went down to Eastleigh to the Lakeside Country Park and swam in their lake. It is a small 360m loop which I did a few times despite the water temperature being only 12c. They do also occasionally have an aquathon their on certain Saturdays.

Plus last week was their first parkrun there, which was 2 laps on a gravel footpath while dodging the steam train as you cross the track!! It turns out I set an age category record there which will likely only last 1 week.

There is a cafe their for post exercise “recovery” food (plus a 10% discount) and even a mini steam train if you want a ride. See
