Celebrating the heritage and future of Clevedon Marine Lake. Marlens is a local charity determined to ensure that this seafront jewel is kept in service and used for the benefit of the community in Clevedon and North Somerset. We are working hard to provide a first class leisure facility for people to enjoy, and we ask everyone who enjoys the lake to help us keep it that way. The lake is for people of all ages who enjoy being in or on the water so for health reasons we would ask dogs to keep their owners away from the lower promenade and the children's paddling area.
Lake Day Saturday 8 April
A day to come and enjoy lots of have-a-go activity on and around the lake from 10 till 3. This is our birthday celebration of the opening of the lake, and the first day of our summer season. There will be canoes, kayaks, sailing, zorbs, rowing and swimming. Paddling in the splash pools and crabbing. The Gig Club will be there to show you how to row a cornish pilot gig and there might even be an Easter egg display where you can come and show off your best home-decorated egg.
Queens Award for Voluntary Service
The Marlens organisation is proud and delighted to have been awarded this honour, the equivalent of the MBE.
The Lake is open again. Check out our water sports page for more information.
Lake Water Quality:
Since August 2016 the Environment Agency have been taking water samples from the lake on our behalf. In each sample they test for bacteria that indicate whether there is faecal matter in the water. The bacteria tested for are:
Escherichia coli or E.Coli (EC)
Intestinal enterococci (IE)
We determine and publish our own water quality classification based on the results the EA provide and the classification they use for designated water bathing sites. Further information on the classifications and what they mean can be found here.
