Kingsbury Water Park

So much to see and do at Warwickshire’s premier waterside attraction! Kingsbury Water Park has 15 lakes situated in over 600 acres of country park. Stroll along the surfaced paths, explore hidden corners, spot birds and wildlife, hire a bike, join an organised event or host your own event. Whatever your idea of a countryside visit is, you will find it at Kingsbury.

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

Please also note that we do not allow personal paddleboarding, kayaks or canoes on any of the lakes

The lakes are old gravel pits and therefore depths can vary, with the possibility of hidden obstructions under the water.

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

  • 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 is now pay and display.

    Parking charges apply at this country park. If you fail to display a valid day ticket or permit then you may be issued a parking charge notice and a fine of up to £50.
