The Park is a great credit to Kettering, with some lovely views and wild life, and do have some very good attractions during the season. One word of warning, parking can be horrendous at peak times, and traffic congestion with in that area, has not been sorted out, as yet. But that said, I would recommend a visit.

I enjoy taking walk round Wicksteed park, the facility is a great local asset. During school holidays we'll walk down have some ice cream, maybe buy a few ticket for some of the rides. really pleasant. Sadly the management are anything but, if the management were better it would have a 5 star rating. If you are planning a special... More

Wicksteed park offers everything for the family day out or even just to walk the dog! Improvements over the winter have provided a lovely wooden walkway around the lake and plenty of spaces to explore. You can take a picnic or sample the various eateries and ice cream parlour. Keeping it's traditional values the park goes from strength to strength.

What a joke this mornings car boot sale was. I am disabled and struggle to walk far, asked about parking close to car boot and was told there would be plenty of marshalls to help. Not one. I managed to find a space quite far from the actual car boot but it was the best I could do. After I... More

I have just spent over an hour trying to leave the park after being in a queue of traffic to leave via the exit barrier. I rang wicksteed twice to inform them of this and was told they would open the barrier. No one did ...and our 30 minutes in the park was a waste and did not justify over... More

Beautiful massive park full of nature and wildlife. Very peaceful place in a springs afternoon. Prices of rides are reasonable but sadly the same cannot be said for food, drink and car parking (in the summer £6 for a day out---outch)! Free to go in on foot. Large open spaces, some modernisation has taken place this year as well with... More

Wicksteed Park is a great place to visit, family fun for all ages. It has a good funfair,, lovely lake that you can walk around (disable access). A train that will take your round the park. Good outlets for food. A gift shop too. Well worth a visit. Highly recommended.

In my experience i found Wicksteed Park very ignorant for their service. I asked for a cup of coffee and they spoke in a intolerant manner and i saw two sexual ducks
