Walking at California Country Park

We went walking at California Country Park on a wet December day, but still had an enjoyable walk. The walk took us around Longmoor Lake which is a 0.9 mile walk, along flat paths. You can extend this walk into the woodland, see map if you choose to extend this to a 2.2 mile walk. You can also walk to the FBC Centre which has a large play area plus bike / scooter track and multi-ball area, if you would like to extend your day out and walk. You will find sign posts directing you to the FBC centre at the far end of the lake, away from where you park at California Country Park.

Where did we walk?

From the car park, we walked past Jackson’s Cafe and the play area and then headed down to the lake. We then turned left at the lake and followed it all the way round until we looped back towards the cafe and playground. The walk took us about 45 minutes (with little legs in tow).

The walk was flat and buggy friendly (the paths were mainly hard standing but there were a couple of tree routes to navigate). The walk is also dog-friendly and there is wildlife to see on the route including swans, ducks and cormarants, plus squirrels. We also noticed a dead tree-truck which had lots of holes in it and looked like a woodpecker had been pecking at it!
