Queen Elizabeth Park

Queen Elizabeth II Country Park
A popular beauty spot for joggers, walkers, families and wildlife-watchers alike, Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Country Park is a nature reserve home to woodland trails and a picturesque lake perfect for lakeside explorations.

From walking to windsurfing

Sitting unexpectedly in Northumberland’s industrial town of Ashington, Queen Elizabeth II Country Park offers a stunning area for dog walking and picnics, plus a 16-hectare lake that’s excellent for windsurfing and canoeing. Nearby Woodhorn Museum is a must-visit when you’re in the area.

Queen Elizabeth II Country Park can be reached by footpath or by the Coast and Castles Cycle route out of Ashington, or from Woodhorn Museum. Tarmac paths and cut grass paths on the eastern side of the park allow good access around the lake. During the summer months a small narrow gauge railway runs from the car park, through the country park to Woodhorn Museum.

The diverse habitats around the lake play host to a variety of birds, plants and mammals, including both resident and migratory birds.
