Chadwick Lakes have long been popular with families who enjoy picnics in the Maltese countryside.
The lakes consist of a number of dams constructed by Sir Osbert Chadwick in the 1880s.
Situated between Rabat and Mtarfa, the area is ideal for walking and trekking, and it is common to see families setting up picnics at the weekend.
Chadwick Lakes form a miniature ecosystem which cradle a delicate habitat for various flora and fauna.
The freshwater stream is home to various creatures including tadpoles, frogs, fish and crayfish.
The system of dams stretches from Rabat to Mosta, with water constantly flowing eastwards through a series of man-made structures.
It drains in the Speranza Valley, then at Salina Bay, and then into the sea.
