Priory Country Park

Priory Country Park

The Country Park, managed by the Bedford Borough Council, covers 300 acres including two lakes, flower grassland and wooded areas. The Park was created following gravel extraction that ended in 1978, and it was opened to the public in 1986. Priory is home to over 300 species of plants and 200 species of birds, as well as a variety of butterflies, moths, molluscs, dragonflies and other invertebrates. The Education Service offers a school visits programme throughout most of the year, and the Park is a delightful place to enjoy wildlife and the outdoors year-round.
