Lovely stroll around the pond, which you can walk up to the common, feed the ducks, parking space and a park great for a morning or afternoon walk.

A pleasant and fairly quiet area to walk and get some fresh air. There are plenty of ducks on the pond, though they are often overfed, so not interested in eating more which can be disappointing. Surprising considering it never seems to be overcrowded here.

Love walking around here in the sunshine, watching the ducks on the pond. Park is good for little ones and a nice escape from town for an hour or so.

My wife and I visited Black Dam ponds when enjoying a weekend break near Basingstoke. It provides a pleasant little walk through trees and parkland beside some small duck ponds

This is a lovely area to go on a family walk to when the weather is nice. It seems to be well kept and has a nice walkway around the pond and a good play area for young ones to play in.
