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 the most wonderful place to visit. It is self funded and run by some staff and a great number of volunteers. Most outdoor activities are covered from walking to sailing and the two cafes are very good. Very well supported...More

On approaching the car park at ferry meadows we realised we didn't have enough change for car park , so we read the signs and found them a bit confusing but thought we'd pay online at home . We walked round for a few hours...More

As regular visitors (at least twice a week) it's been a shame that we can't allow the dogs in the lake recently because of the extreme algae. We're going to the watersports area instead at the moment but my only criticism is that the café...More
