Ballard Water Meadow

A tranquil nature reserve just off Lake Grove Road offers a gentle wander or a place to sit and enjoy the natural surroundings. The traditional village duck pond is a favourite with the children. These are water meadows so, after a heavy downpour, you may need your waterproof footwear.

New Milton Town Council works with the Friends of Ballard Water Meadow to ensure the site is maintained ensuring that nature conservation objectives are fulfilled.   Read the Ballard Water Meadow Management Policy and Work Plan here
