Fleet Pond is a lake and biological Site of Special Scientific Interest in Fleet in Hampshire. It is also a Local Nature Reserve.
Located on the northern edge of the town of Fleet in northeastern Hampshire, at 21ha, Fleet Pond is Hampshire's largest freshwater lake. The Reserve’s reed beds, marshes, heathland and woodland provide sanctuary for a rich and diverse community of animal and plant life, including many that are no longer to be found in an ordered, farmed countryside. The lake is extremely shallow, with a maximum depth of 0.82 metres (2.69 ft) bathymetrically recorded in 2008.
The total area of the Reserve is 141acre of which 118acre is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). This applies to the wetlands, the lake and the dry heathland.

  • Looks different every time I visit. I got caught in the rain yesterday, I've seen beautiful sunsets there, I've played with the dog in the stream. Only thing you need to watch out for is the blue green algae in the summer and autumn (there are signs when it is present). Lovely place to go for a bike ride or for a run (FYI it does get busy on Sunday mornings), to walk to dog or to feed the swans and the ducks.
  • I absolutely love Fleet Pond. It's a good walk with multiple routes to take. You can cycle your bike here, take the children and even pet dogs. The trails are easy to navigate.
