    About Stony Stratford Nature Reserve

    Discover the beauty of Stony Stratford Nature Reserve, a park re-established in 2008 with the support of the Riverside Parks Group. With cleared islands and renovated bird hides, the nature reserve offers nesting grounds and thriving wetland habitats for wildfowl and waders such as Kingfishers. Make sure to take advantage of the picturesque lake with its dipping platform, known for its vibrant dragonflies and damselflies. We encourage visitors to dress appropriately, especially during the Summer when insects are likely to be present for you to make the most of the peaceful nature found at Stony Stratford Nature Reserve.
