Canal and riverside

Wyre Estuary Country Park is situated on the banks of the River Wyre estuary. It has a network of accessible paths provide walking, cycling and horse riding routes where you can enjoy the breathtaking views over the water. During the summer months the river plays host to a variety of water sports.
