Cambridgeshire Reservoirs Reopen

Friday June 5 - Thursday December 24

A number of reservoirs and nearby parks have announced they are open again to the public after weeks of being shut during lockdown.

Earlier this week Anglian Water shared the good news that these beloved spaces have reopened, including popular sites like Grafham Water and Rutland Water.

Now that lockdown restrictions have eased slightly to allow us unlimited outdoor exercise and the freedom to drive around England, these parks are a welcome way to add variety to our lives.

One of the locations which has reopened is Grafham Water, England’s third largest reservoir, which can be found nestled in 1500 acres of beautiful countryside.

This popular Cambridgeshire location is a great getaway for the family to go on a long walk or have a picnic. But you will need to bring your own snacks as the cafes will remain closed during this time.

If you want to get involved with something active then cycle hire can be done in advance using their website.

Sailors and anglers are now able to use the water and the grounds at Grafham, although Anglian Water warned that some restrictions on the use of its facilities will remain in place.

Below is a full list of the parks now open to the public in and around Cambridgeshire.
