Walks and nature

Dinton Pastures Country Park is a haven for wildlife and people alike. We take great care to balance our passion for conservation and the environment with encouraging people to enjoy and cherish our beautiful countryside.

 

Walks around the park

The 450 acres of country park, lakes, woodland, rivers and meadows are a great place to explore the countryside. If you are new to the park, we recommend the following walks which are suitable for a range of ages and abilities:

 

  • The 40 minute dragonfly loop is great for seeing damselflies and dragonflies during the summer months

  • The river stroll is a 1 hour 15 minute walk in some of the quieter areas of the park with cattle, kingfishers and Loddon lilies to spot along the way

  • Our meadow meander is suitable for all abilities, pushchairs and wheelchairs with a 20 minute trail through wildflowers and alongside Black Swan Lake

  • Finally the duck trail is a 1 hour walk that’s great for catching a glimpse at the many mallards, geese, swans and maybe even a kingfisher

 

To find out more about these routes download our Dinton Pastures Country Park walks (PDF document) or look out for the map at the park's entrance.

Friends of lavell's lake (FOLL)

 

Lavell’s Lake is in the northern most part of the country park and set in about 46 acres of a mixture of managed wetland habitats, including Phragmites reed beds, sedges, grass areas, coppiced scrub and hedgerows. We work in partnership with FOLL to manage this very special nature reserve. Visit the friends of lavell's lake website for more information.
