At Hinchingbrooke Country Park there are 170 acres of open grasslands, meadows, woodlands and lakes with a wealth of wildlife everywhere. You can play in the autumn leaves, watch winter waterfowl feeding on the lakes, listen to birdsong in spring and watch dragonflies in the summer.

Families can explore the woodlands or sit and enjoy a picnic on the main field, run around with a football or fly a kite. Mountain bikers even have a specially designed course with various size mounds to play on. Refreshments can be bought in the on site café, a range of delicious hot and cold snacks and home made cakes, hot and cold drinks, chocolate bars or ice creams are available. There are toilets and
