Chequer Lane Fishing Lake - which opened in 2005 - is a major catch for residents across the borough who want somewhere tranquil to fish.
The lake is open to both young and old alike who want to experience fishing in a friendly and peaceful environment, although fishing is only permitted during daylight hours.
In 2016 the site underwent a makeover with all the fishing pegs and paths updated. Picnic benches and a children's play area were also installed, making Chequer Lane the perfect place to while away the hours with your family.
Chequer Lane Fishing Lake is situated close to the M58 motorway on Chequer Lane in Up Holland, with Up Holland Train Station (external link) providing the nearest public transport link at just a short ten minute walk away.
Bus links are also available, visit Arriva (external link) for more information.

The site is patrolled by the Council's Parks and Countryside Ranger Service on a regular patrolling schedule. For more information and contact details for our Rangers visit our Park Ranger service page.
