The lake at Pugney’s has been closed today due to high levels of green algae in the water.
As a precautionary measure we are advising people and dogs to keep away from the water until the algae has dispersed.
We expect the algae to disperse naturally over the coming days / weeks. We are continuing to monitor the lake water so that we can reopen it as soon as it is practical to do so.
The rest of the park remains open as usual for residents and visitors.
