Hamilton Lake Reviews
An idyllic place in the middle of a busy city Mar 03, 2009
Hamilton Lake is a lovely and relaxing place not far away from the city centre of Hamilton. If you come around for a walk or a picnic you won’t have any difficulties in leaving the daily city life behind.
A 4km long footpath surrounds the lake, which is easy to walk (or maybe you’re even interested in a quick jog along the shore, it’s a quite popular course).
Furthermore heaps of palm trees, a lot of hungry ducks, a varied playground and a picnic lawn offer a perfect holiday atmosphere.
It doesn’t matter if you come down for a walk; a relaxing hour in the shade of a palm tree or a feed of the always-hungry ducks a quick trip to the lake is always worthwhile.
I guess it’s fun to come to the lake at every time but I highly recommend a visit in the evening when the sun goes down and the lake looks more sparkly and dreamy than ever.
If you are an early bird you should watch the ‘Balloons over Waikato’ from this spot in March/April. I bet you will never forget this impression.
