It's a Bug's Life
Walton Lake was originally built as a balancing lake for the river Ouzel, but was no longer needed once Willen and Caldecotte lakes were created. Since then, the lake has filled with reeds, and as a result provides a very different habitat to many of the city's other lakes, and is the perfect home for many minibeasts and creatures. There is a boardwalk into the reed bed which has two bird-hides on the route, providing great opportunities for spotting some of the local birds and wildlife close-up.
There's plenty to be seen, and this 'bug's life' event will provide great opportunities for doing so. Booking is essential to secure a place, click here to book. Tickets are just £3 per child, and the morning is suitable for any children over the age of 4 years. Meet at the car park on Newport Road, Woughton Park (off the H8 Standing Way) and have a fun time!
