It provides opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy the waters of the lake whether involved in boating, swimming, paddling or just strolling on the water's edge. The western part of the area has sailing and rowing clubhouses, launching ramps, piers and a wharf. Pleasant shaded picnic areas are connected to a popular commuter and recreational cycleway/walkway with information and directional signage around the lake.
The swimming area comprises a sandy beach and enclosures for swimming and paddling. The swimming beaches are monitored for blue-green algae and bacteria. Whenever conditions are unsuitable for swimming the National Capital Authority gives public warnings.
