Whisby Nature Park

Whisby Nature Park is managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, you can find more information about the park and their Natural World Centre on their official website;

Whisby Nature Park opened in 1989. There are two full-time Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust wardens who organise volunteers to help them undertake habitat management and development on behalf of visitors.

Whisby Nature Park offers a variety of walks covering almost 6.5 miles. The walks include the different lakes and habitats that are in the park.

Walks through the Nature Park are on old industrial tracks and clay banks, linking back to the days when the site was used to extract gravel from underground.

Around half of the paths are hard surface, including virtually all of the routes south of the railway. Waymarkers guide visitors safely around one-way routes.

There are over 30 seats and seven bird hides, six adapted for wheel chair access, and a set of seven large interpretation boards explaining the habitats and species to be seen through the seasons.


Facilities at Whisby Nature Park include:

  • A Natural World Centre in the heart of the park split over two floors which ensures access for all
  • The Centre is free of charge
  • A delicious café serving local food
  • An exciting eco-friendly shop
  • Two exhibitions about the environment and sustainability
  • Six and a half miles of track to walk
  • Seven bird hides, six which are adapted for wheel chair access
