Oulton Dyke, off the River Waveney, leads to Oulton Broad where sea locks separate the broad from the estuary. There are public moorings (pay) at the Yacht Station, near the lock at the eastern end of the broad. Boatyards, private moorings, and a sailing club line the broad that can be busy and attracts many people to the Nicholas Everitt Park that hugs the south bank. There is a children's play park here, a boating lake, amusements, a putting course, a swimming pool and a large grassed play area. There is also the yacht club headquarters and a band stand. All year round the broad is alive with sailing boats and during the summer months a steady stream of hire boats weave their way through the busy broad to the moorings at the Oulton Broad Yacht Station. Here are the public showers and toilets. Several pubs, shops and takeaways are in the village and a short bus or train journey takes you to Lowestoft.
