Our Lakeside Walks are looking lovelier than ever.
In 2013, Wicksteed Park was successful in achieving Heritage Lottery Funding to support The Wicksteed Charitable Trust’s ambitious £3 million pound Lake Restoration Project, ‘to restore it to its former glory as the focal point of the Park.’ The project aimed to restore the character of the lake, reinstate views, enhance habitats for its flora and fauna, and increase access around it.
It’s the heart of our park and by taking a walk around the lake you can see so much wildlife and nature. With shingle beaches, a pontoon, nature spots and the arboretum for you to enjoy and some of the best views of the park. And of course, don’t forget to wave to the train when it toots by!
