FARNHAM Park has been named the top UK park for water sports in a study.
The research by golfsupport.com was collated through an ordnance survey data involving waterline counts, perimeter and area.
A spokesperson confirmed depth data was not available for survey, with the park “ranked higher than perhaps it should have”.
A spokesperson for Waverley Borough Council said: “While we’re happy to take any accolades we receive for the great work we do in managing this beautiful medieval deer park, we’re a little bit bemused about Farnham Park being recognised for watersports.
"The Grade 2 listed Historic Park and Garden has achieved Green Flag status for 4 years running and is a Site of Nature Conservation Importance, an area of Historic Landscape Value and a Local Nature Reserve. But in in order to protect the local wildlife, all watersports are prohibited.
“By all means, visit the beautiful and historic Farnham Park – just remember to leave the paddleboard at home.”
