This 87 acre site was opened to the public as a country park by O&H Hampton in 1997 and is open all year round. It is accessible by foot, bicycle or car and is a lovely spot for walking, picnics, wildlife watching or just to sit and relax. Notably the Green Wheel cycle way runs through the middle of the park linking Farcet to the east to Hampton in the west.
Crown Lakes Country Park was established on what was a derelict site left over from the brick-making industry. Two large brick-pits have since been flooded to create a fantastic wetland feature. It was transformed into Crown Lakes Country Park in 1997 with the planting of over 75,000 indigenous trees and shrubs. The park now spans 87 acres of community parkland and is a recreational resource for many surrounding communities.
