About Nene Park
Nene Park is a large area of parkland to the west of Peterborough and is the region’s favourite place to get outdoors and enjoy nature. Providing a permanent haven for heritage and wildlife and a wide choice of recreational activities for the people of Peterborough and the wider community. Enjoy a night under canvas in the peaceful campsites on the banks of Gunwade lake. The bell tent village is ideal for families. Woodlands, meadows, lakes, the River Nene and miles of paths and trails make Nene Park a lovely place to walk.
Most of the paths in the central area of Ferry Meadows and at Orton Mere, Thorpe Meadows and Woodston Reach are surfaced and suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. The Ferry Meadows leaflet shows a choice of walking routes of various lengths. In the Visitor Centre you’ll find handy pocket sized OS maps showing paths in and around the whole of Nene Park for those wanting to explore further afield. The maps are water-resistant and are priced at £2.99.
