What's on in Rother Valley Country Park

Family Days Out 

The Park has facilities for families to enjoy a brilliant day out in the fresh air.
You can eat at the stables cafe or from the catering unit at the free play area, bring your own picnic or BBQ (as long as it is off the ground).

The park has plenty of open spaces to play your own outdoor games, walk, cycle visit the play areas, ride on the miniature train, feed the birds and animals at station farm.
The activity centre is located on the main lake and has pedal boats for 4 people, rowing boats for four people and canoes for 1, 2 and 3 people for leisure hire. Water zorbing is popular with children and 5 minutes in one of these will tire out the most active of children.

For families who want to learn something together the Activity Centre offers lessons and courses that you as a family can take part together, taster sessions in canoeing and sailing, level 1 and 2 in sailing, 1 star and 2 star canoeing. You can even have an instructor for Archery for your family. Lessons and courses are to be booked in advance.

Warning The Main Lake and Northern Lake contain high levels of Toxic Algae

After testing the water content as we normally do unfortunately it has been found to contain algae that may cause illness in humans and animals including pets.
