Reminder to play it safe at our lakes in the hot weather
Date:
17/11/2017

With the hot weather upon us, we would like to remind visitors, especially swimmers, to play it safe in and around our lakes.

Our lakes form part of a habitat with a variety of wildlife and natural organisms living in them, particularly in the warmer temperatures.

We have designated swimming areas at a number of our lakes for you to keep cool and while your safety is important to us, remember it is your responsibility.

The heat also means animals and insects might be more prevalent both on the land and in the water.

Be aware when you choose to recreate in natural areas there are hazards you might experience such as bites and stings. We recommend you carry a first aid kit with you at all times and always check the recreational and safety notices on our website before heading out.
