Kingsbury Water Park is the jewel in the crown of Warwickshire’s Country Parks.
Sitting in the floodplain of the River Tame, the 250 hectare site features a diverse range of habitats, including meadows, woodlands, lakes and pools.
The park also features many activities, including waymarked trails, cycle hire, model railway, water sports and fishing, and there is a cafe and visitor centre. Sitting at the heart of the Tame Valley Wetlands, the park acts as a gateway for exploring the wider landscape.
The history of Kingsbury Water Park
Until the late 1920s, the area around Kingsbury was quiet riverside meadows and woodlands, a rural landscape largely unchanged for centuries. However, beneath the ground lay valuable deposits of sand and gravel left over from the last Ice Age.
