Daventry Country Park is a popular park ideally situated in the urban fringe of Daventry with circular, way marked and hard-surfaced trails through woodlands, meadows and close to the reservoir with wheelchair accessible bird hides to stop and view the wildlife. With its large reservoir where you can feed the ducks, adventure playground, numerous picnic spots, nature trail and a wealth of wildlife, Daventry Country Park is a great family day out.

Perfect for the whole family but especially the kids. The ducks swans and Canadian geese makes it idyllic. The ice cream and coffee house are a bit pricey but a welcome rest to enjoy the view of the lake. And the parking fee is extortionate.

A great spot to get the kids out for a walk about. There's plenty of birdlife to take pleasure in on the pond and play park nearby too.

We do allow bike riding in the park, however the paths are narrow is some areas so we ask that cyclists are careful and considerate of other users. Many thanks.
