Nature Reserves & Walks
Lexden Gathering Grounds reserve managed by the Essex
Wildlife Trust is adjacent and reached by turning right
out of the Caravan Park, walking up Cymbeline Way, and
then right again into Cook's Lane. Dog's can safely
be let off the lead, there are a number of foot-paths
that weave through the many trees. Especially pretty
in the spring the ground is a patchwork of blue bells. There are also some nice and calm places for relaxing and book reading or writing an essay.
Springs Park across the road from our entrance is a wide
open grassy area with a small area of woodland and some
high ground with seats to view the surrounding area.
Park off Church Lane has some woodland, paths and an attractive
pond with wildfowl. This park is especially good for playing
ball games such as football or rounders.

the footpath that leads to Colchester Town Center in around
30 minutes, begins in Spring Lane opposite the Caravan
Park entrance. It offers a very nice walk into the town
centre and some great views along the way.
