Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

This is a beautiful and peaceful Country Park, being disabled and using a scooter, it is an easy ride round the park on pathways and is very flat.

Beautiful park, perfect for walkers, bird watchers, and families. We love the wooden scupltures scattered around. The play areas are spread across the park - there's lots of places to sit and watch the wildlife, or the sun going down over the lakes. The new facility at the watersports lake is a fantastic addition and provides various activities for those who want to take part. It also includes a larger cafe serving good quality food - there is outdoor seating so that you can sit out over the lake (if its dry) which is really pleasant. Lots of parking too.

Well worth a visit if in area.
Acres and acres of lovely park land.
Small steam train for youngsters and adults. Nene Valley Steam train just by, that goes up to Wansford.
Play areas- swings etc.
Two brilliant cafes - the one by the yatching lake just been rebuilt to a great new specification.
Have a coffee or meal looking over the lake and surrounding fields, watching swans. Geese,, herons and cormerants.
Can't beat it!
Entrance fee can be charged at weekend.

Thanks for the review, seems like you make the most of your visits! The parking fees apply from March to the end of October at weekends and bank holidays between 10am and 4pm. As a Charitable Trust all the money goes to helping provide the facilities and maintain the Park.
