One of our favourite places to walk and swim in Sussex is Southwater Country Park, its a beautiful country park with gorgeous paths to walk and a lovely lake to swim in. There is a beach area on the side of the lake where you can picnic and relax for the day, or take a quick dip to cool off. Its also a beautiful and safe lake for kids to swim, which is fantastic and there is rope marking the boundary to where you can swim to.
The park has a fun adventure-style playground, a beautiful wildlife area 'The Quarry' which has lizards, Kingfishers, Nightingales and various butterflies and dragonflies, an orienteering course as well as canoeing and sailing tuition at the lake.
If you want to walk further or feel like a bike ride, the Downs Link Bridleway also passes through the park, so if you're on your bikes and need a swim, its the perfect spot for a dip to cool off.
