“Delightful park”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

Watermead is a lovley park to visit. Plenty of varied walks and teeming with wildfowl. Hidden paths and featured sculpters add to the ambience of it.

“Aquatic water world gem on Leicesters doorstep”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

Sandwiched between the Belgrave area of Leicester and the village of Wanlip running along the valley of the Soar is this little haven of lakes, river Soar and the navigation river Soar , fabulous for relaxed walking, bike riding , birdwatching with hides, and a little nature reserve. In the winter you can see several breeds of Ducks ,Geese ,Warbles, Buntings, Egrets, and dozens of Herons.
Carparking is pay and display on the Wanlip side but free of Meadow lane,Birstall... Great for getting out with your camera.
