Burgess Park Lake has an excellent reputation as a coarse fishery and is well stocked with carp, roach, tench and bream. The lake is set out with a clearly defined angling area. Fishing is not permitted in the wildlife habitat area.

To fish in Burgess Park, you must buy a day ticket. To make your booking more streamlined, we have partnered with the Catch platform. All tickets will now be processed through the Catch app or website.
