As a regular visitor to Ogden I have noticed over the past few visits the increase in dog poo on the paths, this is really disappointing that dog owners can not clean up after their pets. We have a small child and now find not only off putting to walk here but also unsafe.

All year round in all weathers, it's a fantastic place to be. One of the best nature parks of its kind in the UK.

Good walking whatever the weather, views are quite something, even the wind mills! Nice little place to get a hot drink, parking good, and a good pub at the end of the road.

Ogden Water is a pleasant mix of woodland and reservoir, with a quick walk round the lake option (only takes about 30 mins on a purposeful stroll) and some options for longer walks. One easy detour is to enter the woodland from the car park, go right (clockwise) and after about 10 mins along the path, you'll cross a small... More

It is lovely to stroll around Ogden water I have been lots of times the only thing that spoils it is the Dog owners who let their dogs off leads and do not clean up after them for that reason we hardly ever go now such a shame

This is a nice walk around Ogden Water you have a choice of staying on the path or rambling through the woods. The woods offer interesting sculpture s to look at and find but they are space and average. The downside is that there are quite a few holes in the fencing/barriers that dogs and children can get through putting... More

I'm a regular visitor to Ogden Water and am never disappointed come rain or shine! If you've got plenty of time, you can walk up through the woods up to the wind turbines (particularly good if you're a parent and want a quiet evening as it tires the kiddies out). The cafe/information point serves hot drinks from a rather superior... More
