Walk description:

From the A38 turn on to the B3139 towards Burnham-on-sea sea front. This is Burnham road. Drive along here and just past the petrol station, turn left into Marine Drive, and Apex Park is on your left.

As you enter Apex Leisure and Wildlife Park the toilets are on your right.

Drive into the car park and in front of you, there is a fishing lake. Just to the right of this is a board with a map of the park. The walk starts here.

The terrain is solid for the whole walk and there are several routes that can be done.

1) From the begininig of the walk follow the path aroud the fishing lake. When you get to the children play area, follow the path to the left. This will take you along side a housing estate. Keep walking straight on and you will shortly be walking along by the lake again. Keep going straight on until you get back to the carpark.

2) From the start of the walk, walk along the path until it forks to the right towards Brue Estuary. The sign says it is not wheelchair friendly but if you can manage the small slope at the begining, it should not be a problem.

At the end of this path you can either turn right and walk into Burham-on-sea, or turn left and continue walking until you rejoin Apex Park. Once back in Apex park you again have two choices.

1) turn left at the children's playarea and walk back to the car on either side of the lake.
2)turn right at the children playarea and walk along Lakeside Track into Highbrige.

Additional notes:

This is a lovely well kept park that has a lot of bird life around it lake.

There is a picnic area in the car park, as well as several different types of children playarea suitated around the park.
