There are permanent barbeque stands by Coney Meadow Pond on the west side of the main car park, overlooking Gunwade Lake by the Lakeside centre car park and by the miniature railway platform overlooking Lynch Lake. There is no charge for their use and they operate on a first-come-first-served basis but please remember to bring your own charcoal and utensils.

You may bring your own barbeque provided that it is off the ground but not placed directly onto picnic tables or benches.

Please note that gas fired barbeques are not permitted.

Group Barbeques and picnics

Ferry Meadows and the wider Nene Park is a great place to get together with friends or colleagues and enjoy a barbeque or picnic.

Larger groups (20 people or more) will need to be authorised by the Trust as there may be other activities or events taking place at the same time.
