The park, which is open every day of the year, is set in 144 acres (58 hectares) of Bedfordshire countryside. The main features are the two picturesque lakes, which along with river meadows, woodland and the tranquil banks of the River Great Ouse, give a fantastic variety of scenery and make for a great day out. There are two circular walks within the park. (Natural Interest)
Red Route takes you on a surfaced path through woodland and around the beautiful Grebe Lake. It takes approx 45 minutes to walk at a leisurely pace.
The Green Route is not surfaced and takes you across the river meadows along the banks of the River Great Ouse and around Kingfisher Water. This route also takes about 45 minutes to walk. It can get wet and muddy in winter or after wet weather.
