Visiting Emberton Park 

Set in 200 acres of mature unspoilt parkland , you can enjoy wildlife, lakeside walks, play areas and camping all in a family friendly setting.

The park boasts over 5km of paths and trails winding their way around 5 lakes, through wooded glades and meadows. In amongst this are picnic and numerous play and learning experiences for children. Camp fires and BBQ's are NOT permitted anywhere in the Park. Only those camping in the touring field and at the static caravan site can BBQ, using the ash bins provided and providing they are away from trees and shrubs and do not damage the grass or any of the Park's property.

A park information centre and cafe ensure that you have everything you need to get the most from the park, its wildlife and the natural surroundings. From birdwatching to triathlons, camping, picnicking or simply enjoying a walk in the countryside, Emberton Country Park has something for everyone to enjoy, all year round.
