Shorne Woods Country Park has everything you need for a day out with your dog.  With 292 acres of woodland, wetlands and meadows and six waymarked trails to choose from there is lots to explore.  

Dogs need to be kept on lead in certain areas which includes where seasonal cattle are grazing and the meadows next to the cafe.  There is however a pond where dog swimming is allowed and is signposted from the picnic area.
