The Forest Centre is a great place to visit as a base for a day out, whether you are planning a walk, run, cycle or horse ride or perhaps a more organised activity. It’s also a wonderful place for bird watching. There’s a plan of the Park here that you can use to find your way around.

As well as the bike hire shop which is right next to the Centre’s reception, the Park has other attractions for those of you looking for something a bit more active. Stewartby Watersports Club run a variety of watersports from their base at the north end of the Country Park.

Birds in the Park

The Country Park is a well-known hot spot for wild birds throughout the year. Its mix of woodland, lakes, scrapes and meadows make it extremely attractive to a wide variety of birds. There are two bird hides in the Wetland Nature Reserve, each with chalk boards to record sightings. There’s also a chalk board at Forest Centre Reception. Don’t forget to record what you see – it’s all valuable information.

We will shortly be developing a bird watching page on this site so please come back soon. In the mean time, why not come to one of our regular bird walks? Led by Forest Volunteers, these walks are a great way to get to know the birds that live in and visit the Park. Read more…
