  • Westgate Park’s salt lake has turned pink again this summer; a natural phenomenon in response to very high salt levels, high temperatures, sunlight and lack of rainfall. The salt lakes turn pink due to the natural interaction of a harmless alga and bacterium. The lakes are expected to return to their normal colour later in autumn, when cooler weather and rainfall increases. at Westgate Park
