Lightwater Country Park is a brilliant open space to explore. Although the Country Park is in Surrey is isn’t far from the Berkshire boarder. The Country Park is just off junction 3 of the M3 between Bagshot and Lightwater. What is there to do when exploring Lightwater Country Park? We have been to exploring Lightwater Country Park on a number of occasions and enjoy walking through the woodlands and around the ponds. You can see and hear the M3 motorway through the woods on part of one of the trails but it is fenced off. Alongside the nature trails there…

There were lots of ducks and geese to look at and plenty of muddy puddles! Our walk was lovely and it was fantastic to be outside in the fresh air,…
