With over 300 acres in South Essex, Belhus Woods Country Park combines ancient woodland, working woods, flower meadows, open grassland, and fishing and conservation lakes with a musical themed children's play area and visitor centre including cafe.
It’s a great place to walk your dog, picnic by the lake, feed the ducks, go fishing or spot wildlife. There are many activities throughout the year for families and nature enthusiasts.
There are two large fishing lakes in the park. You can fish all year round with up to two rods but you must have a rod licence before you visit.
