Wyre Estuary Country Park

Wyre Estuary Country Park is situated on the banks of the River Wyre and is an award winning Green Flag Country Park. Many of the facilities are accessible to disabled people including the use of the Tramper all terrain electric buggy. The network of paths lead visitors through a variety of estuary and riverside views, where you will find a wide range of habitats and wildlife, including excellent birdwatching opportunities. There are picnic sites and a special family area. The cafe on site offers basic light refreshments and ice cream.

A wide range of events are held at the park all year round.

Children's Natural Play area - an adventure playground has opened at the park. Funded by the Forestry Commission, this fantastic new attraction is the icing on the cake for this award-winning park which attracts thousands of visitors each year. Why not take the kids up this weekend for a look?
