The entrance to South Norwood Lake
South Norwood Lake and Grounds is a park of 11.5 hectares.
The lake itself once served as a reservoir for the Croydon Canal. It is now used by local anglers, who fish for carp, bream and perch among others, and Croydon Sailing Club. The lake is also home to a variety of aquatic birds including a number of great crested grebes as well as regularly-sighted herons.
As well as the lake there is a bowling green, tennis and basketball courts, football pitches, a cricket pitch, a playground and a trim trail. The grounds are managed by Croydon Council.
