  • We walk our dog around the reservoir fairly regularly. Nice cafe for refreshment afterwards. The only qualm is the parking which is a set fee for 24 hours or something. Would be better if you could pa...  more »

  • Great for younger kids, runners, dog walkers and bird watchers. Great play area / sandpit / water play. Its also got a woodland adventure area with tunnels, a balance plank and a big slide. When you're finished there's a cafe and small soft play too. Please be aware, you are not allowed to cycle around the lake. Also it gets muddy in places after bad weather, so take wellies or decent walking shoes!
  • Excellent cafe and a variety of great play areas for kids. Expect them to get wet, sandy and covered in mud if it's wet. Take a bucket and spade for the sand and water play. Look out for the heritage trail around the old water works. No cycling, so try Pitsford instead if you're looking for a bike ride.
  • We visited Sywell country park with 2 young kids. It was ok but in terms of things for kids to do, there are other country parks around with more facilities. Nothing wrong with the place though. The walk around the lake was nice. The place was kept nice and tidy. It was pretty quiet when we went so had no issues with parking. We will come again :)
  • Good path all round the water. Car park £3. Cafe and big children's sand pit.
  • It's a good place for the kids. Nice long walk and great for picnics
