The Nature Discovery Centre is a great family day out!
With adventure playgrounds, lakeside walks and interactive wildlife displays, there's something for everyone. Explore the interactive wildlife games and learn about the local wildlife and natural history of the lake and reedbeds through our amazing displays. Fish tanks let you see what lives in the lake.
The Nature Discovery Centre runs a programme of events throughout the year such as Wildlife Explorer Days where you can learn bush skills, reptile days, bird box making, arts and crafts to name but a few. We also run events for adults such as gardening master classes.
