Come and enjoy a fun, healthy day out at Ferry Meadows Country Park, located on the western edge of Peterborough. There’s so much to experience and exploring the park by bike is the best way to get around. Pedal along miles of traffic-free paths, discover the three children’s play areas, go bug hunting, picnic on the parkland or savour the homemade delights of the excellent cafes within the park – you can even catch the cycle-friendly Nene Valley steam train.Explore our other Hire Centres
