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 3 miles from Peterborough's busy city centre. There are three play areas catering for different ages and an events programme throughout the year with lots of activities for children including trails during school holidays and orienteering courses for older children.

After all this activity you can relax at one of the cafes, find a nice spot for a picnic or fire up on one of the bbq stands. Lakeside provides a hub for activity and relaxation within Ferry Meadows as the home for Nene Outdoors, a watersports and outdoor activity venture and Lakeside Kitchen and Bar, a contemporary dining and function venue.

Aimed at younger children the Otter playground provides an exciting play space to explore and enjoy with fun play equipment ideal for smalls.
