“Cycle Paths”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

The park has been flooded a lot of late, but once the water subsides the cycle paths are great, you can get all the way into the city centre or out to Cossington almost all on well signed, well surfaced cycle paths ( these are shared with walkers )

“Rural treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I am a regular at watermead country park. It is convenient with several entry points and provides a setting for a variety of country loves. For bird and butterflys, for running and biking, for fishing, picnics, family days out, romantic rondez vous or time to wonder and think alone. There are plety of places nearby for drinks and food too.

“wonderful”

Such nice walks, many species of wildlife. A place where children can run free. In the summer there are plenty of places to picnic.

“Great for walking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Excellent for a good walk.
The only bad thing about this park is there are not many facilities. It needs a few more toilets (currently only one) and a few baby changing areas. Also the section past the marina is not very accessible for prams, so you cannot get around the whole park with a pram unless you go "offroad".
Otherwise this is a lovely park and great for walking, picnics, BBQ, etc.
