    The smaller of the two lakes is called Upper Lake, featuring impressive fountains, an island and a waterfall that leads down to Waterloo Lake via a ravine. It is five acres in extent, but only 3 to 4 feet deep. The Upper Lake is on much higher ground then Waterloo Lake, which was constructed by ex British soldiers who had returned from the Napoleonic wars and thus named after the Battle of Waterloo. They were unemployed, so Thomas Nicholson provided work and income to landscape a former quarry. It took two years to build, and has an average depth of 60 feet deep and covers 33 acres
