Talkin Tarn Country Park has a long and rich history and has traditionally been used for recreation since at least the middle of the 1800's. The same is still true today with visitors coming from far and wide to enjoy all that the tarn has to offer.

You can also bring your own sailing boat, go fishing, and even take part in open water swimming. There is also a rowing club, sailing club and a model boat club based at Talkin Tarn.
