Easy - Firm flat paths. There are plenty of seats for a rest as you go round. Mobility scooters can also be used.
Radipole Lake is one of the RSPB’s most urban reserves and is a quiet ‘natural’ oasis right in the heart of Weymouth. Over time it has been invaded by the Romans, harvested for thatch, had its own swan herder, been the site of a funfair and had a miniature railway! Protected by the local council in the 1930’s, it has been managed by the RSPB since 1976.
It is a great place to get up close to wildlife. The Wild Weymouth Discovery Centre has plenty for families to do: pond dipping, nature trails, competitions and events.
