Fleet pond

Walk, paddle, pond dipping, picnic


Fleet Pond is the largest freshwater lake in Hampshire. The nature reserve has 141 acres (57ha) of varied habitats including heathland, woodland, reedbed and marsh, and is home for many species of birds, butterflies, dragonflies and wild flowers. The Pond itself is 52 acres (21ha) so covers some 35% of the total area of the reserve.  

This is a great family space for walking, cycling and splashing.  a few childrens groups attend to do but hunts and pond dipping. There are also Batwalks and other activities run by local groups.

What to wear?


Outdoor clothing and sensible footwear appropriate for the weather.  Ski suits are really good for children when taking part in autumn and winter outdoor activities as they keep the child snug and offer brilliant protection when splashing in puddles :) We have ones similar to this.

There are so many trees around the pond, why not make a little educational trip. get your little ones a book or worksheet and help them identify the trees you find.



The open areas lend themselves to a bit of bird watching.  This kit contains everything you need to take your family bird watching, including bird identifcation cards and binoculars.

There are also some lovely nature trails. Allowing your little ones to go bug hunting under logs and in the leaves.
