Newmillerdam Country Park

Newmillerdam Country Park is a park for all seasons: ducklings on the lake in spring, the heady scent of flowers in summer, crisp leaves underfoot in autumn, and glittering frosts in winter.

The park’s breathtaking scenery makes it ideal for short walks or longer rambles. The lakeside path is accessible to all, including wheelchairs, booster scooters and pushchairs.

The Newmillerdam Arboretum, located at the top of the hill at the far side of the lake, is a great place for nature lovers. Look out for the identification signs in front of specimen trees, stating the common and scientific names of the trees.

Little ones will love Newmillerdam’s Gnome Roam! This simple walking trail encourages children to use signs and clues to spot carved statues of gnomes and wildlife.

Please note: Newmillerdam Country Park has a pay and display car park onsite (postcode: WF2 6QQ).
