Kingsbury Water Park is Warwickshire's premier waterside attraction, having fifteen lakes situated in over 600 acres of country park. Stroll along the surfaced paths, explore hidden corners, spot birds and wildlife, hire a bike, join an organised event or host your own.

The walk starts in the large car park of the Dog and Doublet canalside public house. We walk for just less than a mile along the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, before entering Kingsbury Water Park. We skirt three of its many lakes, all of which have ample seating so you can observe the scores of bird species...

Under the motorway we follow a bridleway to reach a boating lake where we also observed locals showing off their fine radio-controlled model boats.

We leave the park close to the information centre - where you'll find a cafe and toilets - then head over the motorway for a short canal walk back to the pub.

There are no stiles and the route is dog-friendly.

We did this walk on a Friday. Nice and quiet. Got a bit mixed up in the middle but managed to sort it out. Overall it was a really good walk and would recommend it. Rob & Chrissy. 26/10/18

We did this walk as a group in October 2016. We all really enjoyed this walk. The instructions were excellent.

24.1.16 We re-walked today in order to make walk corrections and add a link to a gpx trail. We forgot how much we enjoyed this walk. The park wasn't too busy, with the many benches all being empty and we had a nice close up of a heron. The bridleway down to the boating lake way pretty muddy after recent weather. As ever at this time of year, gators are handy if you have them.

A very good walk. I walked this with friends in January 2016. Expect to see lots of other people about. There are some minor changes to the route information. Pt2 DO NOT turn right at the fencing but walk on past and take the ramp leading back onto the track. The wooden kissing gate was only an ordinary wooden gate. Pt6 Turn right into carpark and then left passing the toilets on your left. Pt7 There is no post 33 Pt9 There are two paths on the left marked centenary way. Take the second one. There is now a metalled sliding gate leading on to the road.
