Hi all

Iím surveying freshwater dive parks around the world. We donít have one in Western Australia yet and this is the first step in a feasibility study: working out what other parks around the world have on offer.

So, if youíve dived a freshwater dive park, like a converted quarry, or a lake with a dive trail in it, please let me know the name and location, and Iíll send them my survey. You can post details on here or e-mail me at p.buzzacott@ecu.edu.au (p.buzzacott@ecu.edu.au)

Here are a few Iíve dived:
Dutch Springs, Pennsylvania
Stoney Cove, Leicester
Bass Lake, Johannesburg
Lake Rawlins, Virginia.

Anyone know any others?Ö.
