Daventry Country Park is a popular park ideally situated in the urban fringe of Daventry with circular, way marked and hard-surfaced trails through woodlands, meadows and close to the reservoir with wheelchair accessible bird hides to stop and view the wildlife. With its large reservoir where you can feed the ducks, adventure playground, numerous picnic spots, nature trail and a wealth of wildlife, Daventry Country Park is a great family day out.

A lovely walk, with plenty to look at, viewing areas and benches dotted around the route. Wheelchair users will be fine to the cafe but struggle around the walkways as they are stoned/gravelled and uneven.

Very lovely park to go for a walk. Really nice to visit. It's great to go if the weather is good. Onsite cafe and toilets. The park has a really nice river. I would definitely go back again.

I walk my dog here weekly and it is lovely. The view varies from the wooded shaded path, beautiful meadow, to the open area at the top of the reservoir. Plenty of wildlife to see. My only complaint is there are no dog mess bins....More

There are lots of people when it's busy with dogs. So i would say to keep ur dog on lead when you are the main paths. There is a meadow walk that does not look like many use u might be able to let ur dog off there.

Yes, the visitors centre was the reservoirs keepers cottage and was built prior to 1900. We don't any further information on the building or it's residents but would be interested to know more.
