Daventry Country Park is a popular park ideally situated in the urban fringe of Daventry within 1 mile of the town centre, easily accessible by car, bicycle or on foot with the benefit of cycle ways and footpaths from the surrounding areas.
There are circular, way marked and hard-surfaced trails through woodlands, meadows and close to the reservoir with wheelchair accessible bird hides to stop and view the wildlife. With its large reservoir where you can feed the ducks, adventure playground, numerous picnic spots, nature trail and a wealth of wildlife, Daventry Country Park is a great family day out.
Daventry Country Park has been awarded the Country Parks Accreditation and the Green Flag Award proving that the Park is recognised as one of the best green spaces in the country and deliver the core facilities and services expected of Country Parks.
To enable development of the Country Park, a Management plan has been put into place; this plan takes a medium term strategic view of the site (until 2017) and outlines a number of ways in which the park can further contribute to the community and wider social, health, well-being, environmental and economic renewal objectives.
