Wandlebury Country Park – Cambridge Past, Present & FutureBack to Activities
Wandlebury Country Park is a beautiful country estate just outside of Cambridge, offering miles of walks through woodland and meadows. A lovely place to walk, play, picnic or enjoy nature.
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- being outside and in green spaces is a proven stress-buster;
- there’s always lots to do – from events and activities through to volunteering projects or grabbing a drink and a snack from the pop-up café;
- if all you want is peace and quiet, there are quieter and more secluded walks with benches to sit and just ‘be’.
“I’ve been coming here since I was a child and I remember building dens and climbing trees! Now I bring my own family and my dog to let off steam and get some fresh air. We all love it here.”

If you have reduced mobility, there is free parking for blue badge holders and a toilet for use by wheelchair users. Most of the 8 km of paths in the park are unsurfaced but there are no steps or stiles and the majority of the park has gentle gradients. There is an off-road mobility scooter available for free hire, which can be used by anyone who wants to enjoy the park but might need some help to do so; it must be booked in advance. More information here.
There are toilets on site.
Cycling is not allowed in the park (except young children) but cycle parking is available in the car park.
Dogs are very welcome however owners must keep them on leads at all times, except in the dedicated off-lead area. Dog bins are provided.
