Duck crossing bridge at Barnwell Country Park in Oundle

Attraction Information

Barnwell Country Park is a great place for a family day out. Located in the heart of the Nene Valley, close to the historic market town of Oundle, there are 15 hectares of lakes, riverbank and meadows to explore. With 3 way marked waterside trails, numerous picnic spots, a wealth of wildlife and facilities, there is something to entertain people of all ages.

There are circular, way marked and hard surfaced trails through woodlands and meadows or by rivers and lakes, a brass rubbing trail, and an Orienteering trail to follow, with packs available from the Visitor Centre. You can also get duck food from the centre, which is much better for the ducks on the pond (and the water)! There is a Wildlife garden behind the centre, where you can learn how to help the wildlife in your own garden too.

The park has plenty of picnic areas, plus 2 wheelchair accessible bird hides if you want a better look at some of the wildlife. There is so much to do and see at this brilliant park that is open all year and free to visit!
