Spend the day at Aldenham Country Park

There’s something for everyone to enjoy at Aldenham Country Park.

Meet the farm’s residents, including cows, sheep, rabbits, donkeys, ponies and more. Once you leave the farm area, you can enter the infamous 100 Aker Wood – best known as the location where Winnie-the-Pooh and the rest of his friends reside!

Explore the nature trails with footpaths, biking routes, and stunning reservoir views.

And if you need to keep the little ones entertained, visit the adventure playground with swings, slides, sand pits, and a zip wire. The play area has also been adapted for children with SEND, making it a safe space for everyone.
