Bakewell has a number of well looked after public parks with public toilets which are cleaned daily. The largest park is on the border of the suburb Gunn and Bakewell itself. It includes 3 extremely large ponds and a children's playground which should soon be in the process of rehabilitation. The ponds are man made but they do very slowly run out into the wilderness and new water is pumped back in. At certain times of the year many children come to put remote controlled boats into the water.
