About Shinewater Park

Shinewater Park is open throughout the year and free to visit, with plenty to do and see, making it a great place to take the kids with differing delights depending on the season, so great for return visits!

There is a good combination of purpose built recreation facilities set within a country park atmosphere, with a good variety of wildlife filled habitats to explore, including 2 lakes.

The family recreation facilities include several footpaths and cycle ways suitable for wheelchair access, a cool little playground with swings, slides and other fun features to amuse younger kids, and ‘Xtreme Supreme', an excellent, dedicated BMX and skate area! There is also an all-weather sports court, and a field for informal sports, such as football.

If you fancy getting back to nature, there are a variety of habitats to explore, including 2 lakes, Hydneye to the south, which is open for fishing by permit, and the larger northern lake, Shinewater, which is devoted to wildlife conservation. And there is plenty of wildlife to look out for, with insects such as dragonflies and butterflies, and loads of different birds.

There are plenty of water birds, including swans, ducks, moorhens, and Great Crested Grebes to name a few. Herons can often be seen hidden amongst reeds at the water's edge, waiting for fish, and there are plenty of cormorants, often seen hanging out on the pylons! If you are lucky, you may also see birds of prey, such as Kestrels.
