Walks for all - Marbury Country Park
Many of the features of the Country Park, including the lime avenues and the arboretum, are a legacy of the days when Marbury was a grand estate. Stroll through splendid woodlands and enjoy views across Budworth Mere. In spring the woods are filled with lesser celandines, wood anemones and bluebells. The scent of wild garlic permeates the air as the spring progresses and the trees come into leaf creating a shady canopy. Children will enjoy the play area close to the picnic area and car park.
Suggested route: Distance 3km (2 miles) - allow 1 - 2 hours
There is a good network of paths throughout the park to allow further exploration, however the routes indicated are the most accessible with a good firm surface and very little gradients although the path within the woodland may be softer in winter.
There is a bird hide along the way and wonderful views of the mere.
The Park is located off Marbury Lane and is signed from junction 10 of the M56 and Northwich town centre. There are regular bus services from Northwich and Warrington.
There are toilet facilities near the Rangers’ Office and occasionally an ice cream van in the car park during the summer.
