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.

Really well kept large country park. Busy with families all summer and still well populated with dog walkers and joggers in freezing temperatures.
The caravan park is always popular and the café near the car park is reasonable. The water sports centre and the café that end is being refurbished so fingers crossed it's as good as it used to be.

We spent the early morning at garden centres and stumbled on Ferry Meadows, what a stumble! The weather was clear blue skies and no wind, perfect for a walk around the lakes. The information centre is excellent with informative staff. The walkways are all hard surfaces and cyclists are no problem, in fact the next time we go we will take cycles and a picnic! The space is vast and so well planned with a first class café. The car parks are large and right next to hard surface walkways. Judging by the amount of dogs there, a dog owners delight also. I am sure at different times of the year there will be other areas to view like Bluebell Wood. If you want a break from the city don't miss Ferry Meadows!

On a beautiful autumn afternoon it was a joy to cycle to Ferry Meadows, cycle around the Park, enjoy the scenery and have a refreshing cup of tea in the Cafe. I will definitely go again and take others with me as there are lovely walks to enjoy too.
