Description:

There is something for everybody at Ferry Meadows.

Imagine somewhere...

There is something for everybody at Ferry Meadows.

Imagine somewhere beautiful, safe and unspoilt where you can walk, cycle, play, horse-ride, ride a train, go fishing, exercise the dog, jog, push the buggy and explore endless meadows, lakes and woodland all less than three miles from Peterborough's busy city centre.

We also offer three play areas catering for different ages and an events programme throughout the year with lots of activities for children.

If all of this isn't enough to keep you entertained the Visitor Centre stocks a wide range of toys and games along with gifts, souvenirs and sweet treats.

After all this activity you can relax at one of our cafes, find a nice spot for a picnic or fire up on one of our barbecue stands.

New for 2014:

On 11 April Lakeside at Ferry Meadows will open its doors to Park visitors. Lakeside provides a hub for activity and relaxation within Ferry Meadows as the home for Nene Outdoors, a new watersports and outdoor activity venture and Lakeside Kitchen & Bar, a contemporary dining and function venue.

A new and exciting play area is set to open in early April. Aimed at younger children the new Otter playground will provide an exciting play space to explore and enjoy.

A nice walk

Been here for years, especially good in the summer. Fishing, bird watching or just a chilled walk in the sun.

This is lovely park as such, sailing and other water sports, areas with BBQ places with tables and a small lake to sail that model boat, kids love paddling at the edge of the alter, then a really nice café, visitors centre next door, and a lovely long walk around the whole area well worth a day out.

A wonderful, huge park in my former hometown of Peterborough. We used to go regularly when we lived there but hadn't gone again until the last few months. We met up with the brother and sister-in law there a few months. First time there in over twenty years. Just as good as I remembered. Afew changes, obviously. I did miss... More

This is a lovely place to take a leisurely stroll and we've seen lots of people having a BBQ but not sure how you get a pitch? We've had snacks and drinks at the lakeside restaurant looking out over the boating lake. We've playfully tried out the teaching shack about local wildlife and they've build a new wooden play area...

Hi Anne-Marie, thank you very much for your review. There are plenty of BBQ stands around the Park that work on a first come first serve basis. We are currently working on a fantastic addition to the Park for next year which is a retractable BBQ tray for our picnic tables, so disposable BBQ's can be used safely. Glad to... More

Lovely setting, great to let the kids off the leash and run around freely and safely. Always clean and good for bikes, scooters or walking. Been here many times summer and winter. If you don't have a lot of money and still want to be outside with the family this is somewhere you should visit. There is also a train... More

Went with three other adults and a baby and we all missed the parking payment signs (parking is monitored by camera). So instead of paying the required £1.50 I received a £25 demand in the post. The demand letter unfortunately arrived while I was on holiday so I missed the quick payment option and it was raised to the standard... More
