Walk description:

There are several walks here all on level surfaces, many of them paved. There are plenty of ducks, swans, etc to feed, so take plenty of bread. There is a nice walk along the Grand Union Canal which can be entered along a footpath from the far end of the Aquadrome car park. (A hedge separates the canal side from the Aquadrome.) The walk along the canal ends for most wheelchairs at the first lock where there is quite a steep descent. So the total walk along canal away from Batchworth is less than half a mile. The car park is free for everyone. There is another walk around the lake and another to the boathouse. Beyond the boathouse (in the far north-east of site) is a children's play area.


Additional notes:

There are Radar key toilets, but also toilets at the nearby Tesco's superstore. On fine days there will be an ice cream van in or near the car park.
