Scarborough Mere is a natural lake in the Weaponness Valley, in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England.

Formerly measuring 40 acres (160,000 m2) in area, the construction of the York and North Midland Railway line from York to Scarborough bisected the Mere in 1845. Due to that and other factors, including drainage and landscaping, the surface area of the lake is now approximately 16 acres (65,000 m2).

The Mere is now part of the Oliver's Mount Country Park, and is managed by the Scarborough Mere Angling Club as a fishing lake, with the southern end used by waterskiers.

Fish: Roach to 1lb+, Rudd, Bream to 7lb+, Tench to 10lb, Carp to 34lb+, Pike to 30lb+. The Yatch lake is restocked with approx. 700lb. stock each year.
