Ryton Pools Country Park

The 100 acres of Ryton Pools Country Park are just waiting to be explored. The many different habitats are home to a wide range of birds and other wildlife. The excellent surfaced paths enable easy walking around the site, and provide access to an adjoining ancient woodland, Ryton Wood (by agreement with the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust).

Come and have a picnic in the peace and quiet of the Park, or enjoy refreshments at the Visitor Centre. We have a walks and events programme offering activities throughout the year to suit all age groups and interests. Pick up a leaflet from the Visitor Centre.

  • Warwickshire’s Country Parks have introduced a new cash-less car parking pay and display system to make it easier for visitors on arrival. Please note that cash-less payments are by card only and we are unable to accept payments via a smartphone or smartwatch.

    Permit holders do not need to buy a ticket from the machine and must clearly display their valid permit inside the vehicle with the end date visible. Broomey Croft car park at Kingsbury Water Park remains open to permit holders only.

  • Please note that swimming in any of the lakes is not permitted.

    The water in the lakes is natural and untreated, and therefore could contain Weil's disease (a bacterial infection also known as Leptospirosis that is carried by animals, most commonly in rats and cattle). It can be caught by humans through contact with rat or cattle urine, potentially through water transfer although the risks are low.
