Daventry Country Park is a popular park ideally situated in the urban fringe of Daventry, within one mile of the town centre and easily accessible by car, bicycle or on foot with the benefit of cycle ways and footpaths from the surrounding areas.   

With a large reservoir, a cafe selling hot and cold food, an adventure playground, outdoor gym equipment, numerous picnic spots, a nature trail, accessible bird hides, and a wealth of wildlife, Daventry Country Park is a great family day out. 

The Park has been awarded the Country Parks Accreditation and also holds a Green Flag Award recognising it as being among the best green spaces in the country.

The Country Park is undergoing a major programme of improvements to its play area, paths and walkways, jetties, the cafe area and its toilet facilities. Please note the cafe will be closed for eight weeks from 20 January while improvement work is carried out.

Reservoir Cafe opportunity

Daventry District Council is inviting submissions from catering businesses interested in running and managing Daventry Country Park’s new-look café.

The popular café helps cater for our 40,000 visitors a year and is currently undergoing a major extension and refurbishment project to improve it still further.

It is run by an external provider on a contract basis and, with the current contract having come to an end, the Council is looking for caterers to submit bids to run it on a five-year agreement with an option to extend. It is expected the new licence would begin in March, when the refurbished café is reopened.

Country Park management plan

To enable development of Daventry Country Park, a Management plan has been put into place; this plan takes a medium term strategic view of the site (until 2023) 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. You can view the management plan here.
