About the park

There are accessible pathways for all to enjoy a walk through the country park year round, as well as a network of natural routes allowing you to get closer to the wildlife. The large lake provides a location for watersports such as sailing, rowing and windsurfing. There is also a large function hall/meeting room, bar and restaurant and a small function room for hire. Fairlop Waters Country Park is also an approved premise, licensed to hold weddings and civil ceremonies. For those adventurous visitors, we have the Climbing facility suitable for all ages, the largest boulder park in the UK as well as a large natural play area for younger visitors. Come and try out the UK’s largest boulder park located beside the lake at Fairlop Waters Country Park. The Boulder Park consists of 9 individual boulders which are constructed of sprayed and carved concrete and vary in heights and shapes to cater for all standards, from novice to expert. They are all designed for solo climbing and are a great place to practice bouldering and traversing skills.
