Levels of potentially toxic blue-green algae are dropping at Apex Park lake.

Sedgemoor District Council said the Environment Agency has taken samples of the water and algae levels are now 'below the threshold'.

However, there is still algae in the lake in Burnham-on-Sea but it is not blue green algae strain.

Fishing can now resume and permits are purchased from Thyers Tackle in Highbridge - 01278 786934. 

But the council has reminded the public that the below park byelaws remain in place:

•    A person shall not in the park bathe, wade or wash in any lake. 
•    Neither shall a person allow a dog to enter the water.

The warning signs will be removed.  

The council wants to remind people there is plenty to do and see in the 42-acre park. 

Visitors can go skateboarding; use the outdoor gym, as well as just enjoying a walk and the wildlife.

There is a children’s play area, a toddler area, a football goal, as well as BMX facility. Accessible paths go around the park suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. 

There are picnic spots, ample car parking and toilets.  A variety of hot and cold refreshments are available from Lizzie’s Kitchen in a restored 1950's American Airstream catering unit.
