Keynes Country Park

Cotswold Country Park and Beach (formerly Keynes Country Park) is the first place to stop on a visit to the Cotswold Water park. Situated between Swindon and Cirencester close to the village of Somerford Keynes the award winning park offers 2˝ miles of lakeside walks, cycling, two children's play areas, sites for family barbecues, a swimming beach and boating available and the Millenium Centre house's a small café and exhibition room. Refreshments can also be purchased from the "The Shack" a decked area close to the swimming beach. Close by is a nature reserve with a hide for bird watchers.

The Cotswold Water Park is the largest area of man-made lakes in Britain and are the remains of many years of gravel extraction. The gravel  is still extracted today and the park will continue to grow in size and become a haven for many species of waterfowl of which over 20,000 overwinter here now.

There are several nature reserves throughout the park and several hides for bird watching have been built by the Cotswold Water Park Society.
