I love ferry meadows especially the water sports end. Nothing better than sitting by the water. I would probably eat there more often but the prices are ridiculous for what you get. Staff sometimes look like you just wanna shake them! (Not very friendly) but...More

It's my usual running route and I love it so much. Always well looked after and clean. You never see any rubbish lying around and it's a good place to get closer to nature and away from the dirty streets of Peterborough.More

Visited many times, various different routes and walks to take. Lovely to bring the dogs, often very busy but generally a nice, friendly place. Great parks for children, and nice area to eat or have coffee and cake.

Absolutely stunning place for a day out, a picnic, a dog walk, or a spot of introspection. I visit as often as I can. Good for the soul.

Hi. We don't advise that dogs swim in the lake as we can't be sure what is in the lake. We do occasionally get blue/green algae in the lake which is toxic for dogs. Obviously if your dog goes into the lake then it is at your... More

Half the time the NPR cameras don’t even register you! But you have up to 24 hrs to pay on line I believe, if cash isn’t taken. Never had the problem myself though
