Grab a picnic and a few cold drinks, shout walkies to the dog and get gone to Emberton! This place is peaceful and the ideal place for that one summers day where the temperature in England gets above 25!

I have been visiting here since the park opened in 1965 so I have seen many changes some good and some not so. Still worth a visit for a stroll and to watch the world go by.

Good cafe now, great for kids, sand pit with digger arm and conveyor is brilliant. Good play areas, easy flat access all around the lakes. Nice and not too big.

Absolutely love Emberton park in the summer but I rarely get the chance to visit it in other seasons. Today was the exception and what a joy it was! The trees are looking very autumnal with a plethora of colours wrapping the trees or spiralling...More
