The lake in Weald Country Park
The lake in Weald Country Park
At nearly 500 acres, Weald Country Park is the largest of the Essex County Council Country Parks. Parkland has been established here for more than 700 years. In the Middle Ages Weald Country Park was part of a hunting ground, used by medieval monarchs and also by the abbots of Waltham. The lakes, the tree-lined avenues, and large parkland trees are the result of the landscaping carried out in the 18th century.

The Country Park consists of woodland and grassland, and has two lakes as well as several ponds. A map of Weald Country Park can be seen at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) See also LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
