Welcome to Clevedon Marine Lake - a "community park" which is run and maintained by Marlens, a local charity.

Marlens is composed entirely of volunteers and depends on local fund-raising to pay for the lake.

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.

  Queens Award for Voluntary Service

The Marlens organisation is proud and delighted to have been awarded this honour, the equivalent of the MBE.

Water Quality:

The Environment Agency takes regular water samples each summer (15 May - 30 Sep) from the beach beside the lake. This is the water which fills the lake and the results can be seen on their web site.

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)
