  • 750 acres of country park and wildlife refuge created from an old gravel pit complex which, even on a bleak early spring day made a very good half day out with the children. PLENTY of parking: £ 3.50 ...  more »
  • Had an great day out with my camera and Stanwick lakes didn't disappoint. It was a cold day bit perfect to enjoy taking pictures around the lake  more »
  • Me and my friend come here almost every summer and we have so much fun. Although it can be quite muddy everywhere so if you have young kids bring a change of clothes and shoes! It’s fun for all ages!  more »

  • Lovely country park with plenty of walks and open spaces. Large play area for toddlers and older children. Water play area is a hit with my 3 year old. Can get very busy during school holidays, and the parking machines only take cash. You can pay by card at the visitor center but this closes at 5pm do don't get locked in!
  • Only found this place by chance but was only £3.60 for all day parking with a nice cafe and a few different walking routes around looking quite nice. A bike hire place available at reasonable prices but the best part would be the play area for the kids! With good maintained timber "assault course" with tunnels, sand pits and running water around it looked a great place to come back to with the kids (but they will get wet n dirty).
  • We love the lakes. Lovely for walks and our toddler loves the park. Everything is well maintained. The facilities are excellent and the parking fee goes towards the upkeep of the park so worth the money. We have a season pass which is an absolute bargain!
  • Cannot believe how fortunate that I am to have this on my door step! The family love it. The dog loves it. Everyone I've taken loves it there. It's always well kept and looked after and I cannot fault it.
  • Came here on a nice sunny day. Was expecting a fun time out yet it turns out, that the whole thing is just for kids. Was hiping i could do something too 😂😂. Just a waste of 2 hours waiting time and 5 60. Just to see some kids playing in mud. However the nature side of things was cool. Would only recommend to families with small children
