Lakeside Country Park is the perfect space to escape the hustle of urban living. Find some peace and calm amongst 22 hectares of lakes, wet meadow and woodland. The Park is thriving with a diverse range of wildlife from birds, insects and small mammals to deer, foxes and even species of bat.
Enjoy a walk around with your dog, stop for a picnic, relax with a day's fishing or just watch the world go by...
