Bedfont Lakes Country Park is a designated Local Nature Reserve and Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (of Metropolitan Importance) and has won many national and regional awards for excellence.
Bedfont Lakes Country Park has partially re-opened today, Monday 23rd January. The south side will remain closed until further notice due to the site being heavily iced over.
Bedfont Lakes Country Park is open every day except Christmas Day.
Bedfont Lakes Country Park opens at 8.00am and closes at 4pm at Bedfont Road entrance and 4.30pm at the Clockhouse Lane entrance for the duration of the winter period. The gates are locked at these times so please make sure you leave before closing time.
[There are signs with closing times at both entrances to the park and on gates leading into the park.]
About the Park
This award winning 180-acre site is made up of gently rolling hills, wildflower meadows, woodland and wetlands providing a picturesque country setting for your visit in what is an otherwise heavily urbanised area.
With patience, and a bit of luck, you can spot a wide variety of fauna at Bedfont Lakes. However some of our visitors can be secretive and difficult to spot. If you want to find out more about the wildlife why not visit and try the self-guided nature trail, join us on one of our guided walks in our events programme, or bring your school groups in for environmental education.
Many of the mammals present are very secretive and/or nocturnal so they can be hard to spot, but knowing where to look and sitting quietly is very often the best tactic to adopt.
There are over 390 species of plants at Bedfont Lakes.
There are a number of different habitats at Bedfont Lakes Country Park and it is this mix that provides niches for plants and animals to thrive in.
