  • 全港最大的人造湖, 距離香港迪士尼樂園僅約1公里,乘坐地鐵到迪士尼站步行約15分鐘即可到達。迪欣湖面積很大, 湖邊亦有公園可以散步、慢跑,還可以在遊客中心租腳踏遊覽, 湖恬靜優美的湖面風光,最適合一家大小 
  • This place is not tourist attraction, and part of the well established infrastructure of the city. It is quite possible to walk in the Park. And at the Lake rent a catamaran and go. It is very refreshing, especially in hot weather.

  • Relaxing place, suitable for family or couple. Good facilities, washrooms are clean. You can rent bicycle or water bicycle here. Crowded during weekends, better to come earlier if u want to get a place for picnic. Long queue for car parking too.
  • A comfortable place to travel. Suggest to walk through the whole circle path around the lake. Food is limited as there is only one 7-11 there.
  • Beautiful lake with gazebos all around and lots of grassy areas for picnic. You can rent paddle boats or bicycles as well.
  • Lovely place for walks and picnics.
  • Nice place but difficult to get to.
