Pugneys Country Park

The Park has facilities for families to enjoy a brilliant day out in the fresh air. You can eat at our Boat House cafe or just grab an ice cream, or even bring your own picnic or BBQ (as long as it is off the ground).

The park has plenty of open spaces to play your own outdoor games, walk, cycle visit the play areas, ride on the miniature train, feed the birds.


We have numerous cycle routes around the park and local area. For more information visit

Dog Walkers

We love seeing four legged friends at the park, but we do ask that their owners keep them on their leads and under control around other park users and wildlife. On muddier days why not treat your pouch to a clean at our famous "Dog Wash"

Pugneys Light Railway

Ride on our Miniature Railway, operated by a dedicated team of volunteers and open the general public on most weekends and Bank holidays. For more information follow them on Facebook Pugneys Light Railway.


Feed the ducks, or have a go at bird spotting in one of our two hides

Pirates Cove Play Area
