Attraction Information

Leaplish Waterside Park is 1 of 3 visitor centres at Kielder Water and Forest Park and a terrific location to set course for in warmer weather!

Activities include archery and junior archery, table tennis, fencing, plus gymnastics for younger kids. You can also walk on water inside an inflatable ball! So whatever their confidence or mobility level there's something to tempt your little monkeys here!

This an ideal place for those who are looking to get active and try out new sports. It is also great for walks and bike rides along the Lakeside Way or to look out for some of the Kielder ‘Super Six”, which includes salmon, ospreys and red squirrels.

You can hire pleasure or fishing boats, or board the Osprey Ferry, for a relaxing tour of the lake. Pre booking is essential for these activities.

You can actually stay here with the family in a choice of lodges or on the site for motor homes and caravans, or you can visit for the day and access the great facilities for an action packed day, if you can fit it all in!
