Chard Reservoir is free, easy to find and there is plenty of parking in the designated car park.
The excellent visitor facilities and well-kept paths are ideal for pushchairs or mobility scooters, making this a great spot for everyone to enjoy.
Dogs are welcome, but are restricted to certain areas in order to protect the wildlife. They are allowed off their leads, but must be kept under control.
Chard Reservoir also runs free family events over the summer where children and adults can experience clay modelling, bug hunting, fire lighting, pond dipping and bushcraft activities.
