Southsea is a seaside resort and geographic area, located in Portsmouth at the southern end of Portsea Island, Hampshire, England. Southsea is located to the south of Portsmouth city centre and to the east of Old Portsmouth.
Southsea began as a fashionable 19th century Victorian seaside resort named Croxton Town, after a Mr Croxton who owned the land. As the resort grew, it adopted the name of nearby Southsea Castle, a seafront fort constructed in 1544 to help defend the Solent and approaches to Portsmouth Harbour.

Canoe lake is a great place for a cheap day out, a nice stroll around the lake with a park right next to it! In the summer they also have a little water area where the kids can play. Free parking around the area to.

Great place to bring the kids. Nice park with variety of thing to do to keep the kids busy including zip line, swings and slides.

This place is quite historic. At the museum you can see the history of it. It still has the potential to be a lovely place to go but sadly some people just don't put their rubbish in the bins or take it home and this has resulted in the beautiful swans swimming in rubbish! In the canoe lake cafe I didn't receive great service. It was almost like the lady found it a chore that she had a customer. Maybe a one off but I won't be going there again. Greens cafe is nicer but quite expensive. I found that the cafe at the model village was the best. Nice snacks for a day out, very reasonably priced and lovely people. 🙂 There is a fabulous play area for kids and mini golf is enjoyable. I feel the pedal boats and other water activities, when they are available, are a little over priced. Saying all this....I do still enjoy a visit.

Canoe lake is just a real nice place to be at any time of year. There are amenities, play areas, open grass, trees, a lake (ofc) and a model village among other things. Love it!

Canoe Lake is great for a picnic or a walk it has a great park for young kids and slightly bigger area for older children. Although there is a car park right next door it's better to find street parking that's free and walk to Canoe Lake.

Very pleasant place to visit. Small lake with many swans. Large children's playground, model village and two cafes. Recommend vanilla milkshake, best in area. Close to seafront and pier.

A great place for a family visit. Mini golf was good value at £3 per person for 12 holes. Swan pedaloes a bit steep at £8 for 20 mins. Good quality play area and children's water fountain.Nice cafe and toilets on hand.

A great open space just behind the seafront of Southsea. There is a cafe and public toilets, and a boating lake for kids. When the weather is good however it is super busy and the bins cannot cope with the litter levels. Something for the council to bear in mind.
