This small, man-made lake adjacent to the golf course in North Hagley Park is a favourite with model boat enthusiasts and duck feeders. The Christchurch Model Yacht Club was formed in 1898, and its members continue to conduct nautical manoeuvres in miniature on the lake today. The lake itself is crescent shaped, with large overhanging oaks and birches and a crowd of resident ducks; you can incite a feathered riot with a few crusts of bread. Spot the New Zealand Scaup: small ducks with jet black plumage and bright yellow eyes. The tiny wooded pond next door is Albert Lake.
