Country Park


Thames valley Park offers over 80 acres of park, water meadows and nature reserve along the River Thames with great cycle routes and foot paths incorporating the Thames Path. Many different groups enjoy this space, varying from remote control aircraft, football, health and fitness and other hobby sports.

 

The nature reserve has areas of wild-flower-rich grassland, several ponds surrounded by reed and a wide variety of native trees and shrubs. Reed warblers and reed buntings nest in and around the reed-beds in summer. Occasional winter visitors include bittern, water rails and ducks such as the shoveller and gadwell. There is a wooden pontoon on the first pond and amenity areas around the other ponds to enjoy the natural habitat and 38 species of bird recorded this year.

 

The space is also widely used for health and fitness purposes and many of the business arrange such events as Yoga, Jogging and water trips. This country park currently has two lakes and a wide expanse of cycle routes. A Ready Bike scheme is also available to people looking to undertake the cycle routes available. We also boast a thriving beehive that can be seen but not touched.
