    Formerly known as the Simpson balancing reservoir these lakes were formed in around 2006 to provide a more attractive and interesting area of parkland for the adjoining housing development at Ashland. The site comprises a chain of connected lakes and an ornamental pond with a fountain. Ashland Lakes still serve as a balancing reservoir to accommodate excessive rainfall so please note that the lakes can overflow from time to time.
