There's plenty more than perch in here

Perch pond must have one of the greatest names of all fishing venues in the UK. The pond is stocked with a wide selection of coarse fish – despite what the name suggests! The water is located on the south/east sides of Wanstead Park and dates back to the 17th century.

During 2015 there was a problem with algae during the summer. The local press reported sightings of dead bream around the lake.
