Lake Gregory was constructed during the period of British Governor Sir William Gregory in 1873. The lake and the surrounding area make up the Gregory Lake Area.
However, the lake was mainly used for recreation and leisure after its construction. At its peak of fame, Gregory Lake was the most important attraction in the area and was used to relax by many visitors.
In 1913 the waters of the lake were directed into a tunnel which flows to a hydro power station at 'Blackpool' between the town and Nanu Oya. The power station continues to supply electricity to the town to this day. In British times Lake Gregory was used for water sports and recreational activities. Today also water sports and picnic tours are available here.
