Take a stroll along the lakeside path, take a ride on the Pugneys Light Railway (available on selected weekends – pugneyslightrailway.co.uk) or make the short walk up the hill to Sandal Castle and see how picturesque the country park looks from above.


Explore the country park on two wheels, bring your own or hire one for the day. The whole family can get involved with child trailers available for the little ones.


A haven for wildlife, the country park offers nature lovers the chance to see a variety of natural habitats. Head along the woodland trail to see a glimpse of Pugneys’ second lake, a hive of wildlife activity.


Treat yourself to a bite to eat in the Boat House Café or, if the weather is fine, bring your own picnic and enjoy the panoramic views across the lake.
