Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a very good ecological status.

Nutrient concentrations and turbidity are low, and there is no evidence of algal blooms or sediment loads.

These values are expected to vary throughout the year as a result of weather patterns and changes in land use. Please help us to better understand this ecosystem by continuing to make measurements.

Notes: 
Although I have noted immediate surroundings as urban park the surroundings are mixed use, urban park and residential. The lake is at a higher level than the surrounding buildings. There was no algae but quite a large amount of duck/goose/swan poo floating on the surface at the edges of the lake.
