Opening of Lakeside at Ferry Meadows


This following a £2.5 million investment from Nene Park Trust and a year of extensive works to the building and surrounding landscape.

Nene Park stretches six miles along the valley of the river Nene to the west of Peterborough. The estate includes Thorpe Meadows, with its large rowing course and diverse collection of contemporary sculpture, two 18-hole golf courses at Thorpe Wood and Orton Meadows, and Ferry Meadows Country Park, which contains a wide range of visitor facilities including a watersports centre, areas for camping and caravanning, a visitor centre, gift shop and three children's play areas.

Lakeside has something for everyone

Lakeside provides a hub for activity and relaxation within Ferry Meadows as the home for Nene Outdoors, a new watersports and outdoor activity venture and Lakeside Kitchen & Bar, a contemporary dining and function venue at the Park.

Anthony Chapman Director of Nene Outdoors said "With access to the beautiful Gunwade Lake, Nene Outdoors caters for many activities on and off the water. This includes hire of kayaks, canoes, row boats and pedaloes, group activities such as raft building, land games and orienteering and structured courses in sailing, windsurfing and kayaking. Nene Outdoors also boasts a brand new 60 seater conference and meeting space with projector, air conditioning and fantastic views of the lake providing a professional environment for away days and meetings. With a campsite and outdoor clothing and equipment shop Nene Outdoors has something for everyone."

To add to the exciting facilities that are on offer, you will also be able to hire bikes at Lakeside. This facility should be available from late spring.

To get a feel for all that Lakeside has to offer why not visit the park on Saturday 10 May when Lakeside will be hosting a Family Fun day. There will be opportunities to watch and take part in various activities whatever your experience and ability as well as lots of family friendly offers.
