With over six miles of footpaths around Whisby's famous ponds and lakes and the Natural World Centre, Whisby Nature Park is a great place for a family day out.
Once a gravel pit, the nature reserve is now managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust to encourage a variety of birds and wildlife, including nesting nightingales whose song can be heard during April and May. With over six miles of all ability pathways, you can explore the lakes and hides on foot or using one of the mobility scooters which can be hired from the Natural World Centre.
The centre offers the delightful Boardwalk Café where you can choose locally sourced food whilst enjoying the stunning lakeside views. A Gift shop offering unique gifts and crafts, with the emphasis on local crafters, Fair Trade and recycled products. All this whilst a changing programme of themed exhibitions and events ensures there’s always something new to see.
Topped off with the award winning Little Darters Wildlife Adventure Area with fossils to discover in the sand, water play, towers to climb and much more. Families can spend the whole day here – it’s only natural you’ll want to stay!
