After parking we had a great time the kids 16. 6 & 5 had a great time running and kicking leaves and picking twigs. I felt sad that this place was completely left to nature and trees weren't...

If you love nature, trees, fresh air, this place then is perfect for day out with family ;) Much better than going to city park for a walk :)

We enjoy visiting Wandlebury because it has a lovely natural feel allowing enjoyment of the simple things in life. As others have said, trees are felled and left to rot because that's what happens in nature and is followed by the decay process that allows lots of creepy crawlies to thrive and feed the wildlife. The £3 parking should perhaps... More

A parking fee of £3 for the day is not excessive for somewhere to walk and enjoy the outdoors, but this is one of the most boring parks I have ever visited. A lot of trees have fallen and are left where they lay, signage is poor and really there is liittle else to enjoy. Poorly tended woodland and you... More

Lovely woodland walks, wildlife and nature all around, the Roman Road, fantastic views and a sense of being away from all the madness. Family friendly without being overrun as there is so much space and just a genuinely pleasant and serene area to spend an afternoon walking. Minor gripe is the lack of a cafe which would have been really... More

I would recommend cycling to the park if possible, as the parking attendant didn't seem the friendliest, but the park itself is lovely. There are plenty of leafy forested paths to wander around and explore. A great family picnic spot (bring your own food) and it costs nothing unless you need to park a car.
