Ferry Meadows Activities

While you’re in Ferry Meadows, there is plenty to see and do if you’d like to get out and make a day of it.

Walking: the park has a neat network of interesting and picturesque routes, including the Ham Mere, Wildflower, Gunwade and Bluebell trails – that latter of which now includes a new boardwalk.

To get better acquainted with the walkable routes in Ferry Meadows, pick up a handy pocket-sized OS Map from the Visitor Centre, located next to our sister venue Ferry Meadows Café. These water-resistant maps include details of all the routes at Nene Park and cost £2.99.
