About Tattenhoe Valley Park
Tattenhoe Valley Park is a delightful place for a walk, cycle or horse ride, with plenty of wildlife to spot along the way. The series of ponds splashing over rocks which provide a fantastic habitat for insect, bird and waterlife. At the western edge of Tattenhoe the brook runs through a small woodland, Water Spinney, which is also home to a large population of birds.
The nearest car park is on Rosemullion Avenue next to the allotments and just off the V2, Otherwise, you can use the car park at Furzton Lake where the park begins. Alternatively roadside parking can be found at many points along the brook's meandering route. Charging points for electric cars can be found in the car park off Rosemullion Avenue.
There are no public toilets.
There is a trim trail with exercise stations that can be used by themselves or incorporated into a jogging session for all-round fitness.
There are picnic tables along the route.
Early morning and dusk are excellent times to enjoy the insect, bird and water life that is resident in the park. We have recently carried out work to help increase the biodiversity in the ponds including tree thinning works to provide more light to the waters surface, we used the felled trees to block entry points to the ponds discourage dogs from entering the water.
Access is generally good on designated leisure routes although there are some gradients.
