Explore the open grassland, wander through the woodland and watch the wildlife meander around the ponds at Fitzwilliam Country Park.

Keep your eyes out for water vole, skylarks, buzzards and meadow pipit as you explore the park along the accessible for all paths.

Looking for something a little different? Hunt for wild water creatures as you try your hand at pond dipping or search for a big catch as you go fishing. Low platforms around the park enable you to have a go at both activities. What creatures will you find?

Children welcome
