Attraction details
Owner description: There is something for everybody at Ferry Meadows. Imagine somewhere beautiful, safe and unspoilt where you can walk, cycle, play, horse-ride, ride a train, go fishing, exercise the dog, jog, push the buggy and explore endless meadows, lakes and woodland all less than three miles from Peterborough's busy city centre. We also offer three play areas catering for different ages and an events programme throughout the year with lots of activities for children. If all of this isn't enough to keep you entertained the Visitor Centre stocks a wide range of toys and games along with gifts, souvenirs and sweet treats. After all this activity you can relax at one of our cafes, find a nice spot for a picnic or fire up on one of our barbecue stands. New for 2014: On 11 April Lakeside at Ferry Meadows will open its doors to Park visitors. Lakeside provides a hub for activity and relaxation within Ferry Meadows as the home for Nene Outdoors, a new watersports and outdoor activity venture and Lakeside Kitchen & Bar, a contemporary dining and function venue. A new and exciting play area is set to open in early April. Aimed at younger children the new Otter playground will provide an exciting play space to explore and enjoy.

Ferry meadows country park is ideal for relaxation within the city, with activities such as walking trails, bird watching, steam train and preserved railway, boating and canoe facilities and narrow boats, camping and children's activities and guided walks, All within a few miles of the city centre. Ideal for spending a few hours or for fun with family. As others have noted the water sports centre and cafe is under refurbishment ( there is a premier inn, beefeater restraint and bar near park entrance). And car park charges apply only at weekends or bank holidays,
All in all a good inexpensive day out loved by locals, Can be busy at weekends.

Lots of space for walks, bikes, football etc. Payment for parking at weekends, not sure about bank holidays but probably the same. Great for picnics etc.

Great for taking children out to have a run around, they can also go on the train but you do have to pay for this. Good to walk around the lakes and see the wildlife. Also great for taking the dog for a walk.

Definitely recommend for an afternoon out
