Boasting a Country Park with plenty of space for family games and picnics, and also the recently refurbished visitor centre and a brand new children's play area, Carsington is a great place for a family day out. There is also a sailing club and trout fishery for those looking for an activity to get involved with. Dogs and barbeques are welcome in the Country Park.

There are 8 miles of paved walks from short strolls to long serious walks.

The reservoir was always conceived as a natural looking haven for wildlife and exciting space for water-based activities co-existing in harmony.

The restaurant serves a wide range of lunches and refreshments and has windows and a terrace that give panoramic views of the water and park.
