Jubilee Lake Park is proving very popular with campers. If you are brave and camping in a tent during the winter months it is best to be well prepared. If using an airbed as a mattress, they absorb the cold from the ground below. Top the airbed with a good compressed foam mat or plenty of corrugated cardboard as this is very insulating. A sleeping bag suitable for -5C is also a great idea. It can snow in the park during winter.
During the quieter months, maintenance will be carried out in various areas of the park as it is less disruptive for our guests. The old camp kitchen will be getting an upgrade as will the old amenities block.
The council will be landscaping around the park planting new native plants and fixing up some of the drains.
While in the park, stroll down to the kiosk/cafe for a well deserved coffee or tea and a bite to eat. Breakfasts can be obtained as well as light lunches and evening meals. See kiosk and park managers for details.
It may seem months away yet, but our Christmas Party will be held in the park on Sunday December 3rd.
Christmas is closer than you think.
