Boathouse in the Barking Park!

The lake has a fleet of rowing and pedal boats, each boat holding up to 5 passengers. We 'specialise' in bubbles so there are always some onsite to purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us to discuss private events and filming oportunities. Other facilities in the park include a Cafe in the Park, a children's' playground, the Splash Park and The Light Railway

We are open* on all weekends and all public and school holidays
between April and the end of October

* Please note that the boats will operate until sundown which can be between 4 and 7 pm depending on the time of the year. Please ring us on the day if you need more specific times.
