“Peaceful place, a perfect escape area within a busy city”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We thoroughly enjoy visiting Branston Water Park. It's a place of beauty, peace and wildlife. Recently we visited on a hot day, saw lots of wildlife and even got to enjoy an ice cream from an ice cream van near the car park area. It has a nice play area for those with younger children and there is an area where you can feed the ducks and other birds. If you choose to walk all the way around the lake there are seats at regular intervals where you can rest and look across the water. Lovely free day out, if the weather is nice it's a bonus, if not still a beautiful place to visit.

“Great place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

A very pleasant way of spending an hour or two. We appreciated the tarmacked path, and enjoyed watching the wildlife (mainly birds -- it was too windy for butterflies). We also appreciated the car park being free.

“Beautiful tranquil location on the edge of Burton”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Very pretty. Great for dog walkers, cycling, running, fishing, picnics or just going to use the childrens excellent new playground. Free to use. Well looked after with wardens making sure the water and grounds are not misused. Lots of wild birds and water fowl to see....Only think is the toilets are not too pleasant and a cafe would be fantastic. I think the council or whoever runs the Water Park are missing a trick. A cafe would be wonderful...Well worth a visit.

“Don't make a special journey.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Largish body of water with plenty of waterfowl to feed. A flat path walk about with a play area for kids, but not little else, it's rather lacking in truth.
