Visit Us

We welcome dogs and their well-behaved owners onto the Boardwalk overlooking Thorpe Lake weather permitting. From here you can enjoy drinks and food from the Boardwalk Bistro – and we’ll even take care of your pets thirst too! In wet weather, we have a small ‘dog friendly’ seating area situated within the gift shop. The picnic benches in Little Wildlife Adventure Area are available to use also.

Dogs in the Nature Reserve

Dogs must be on leads within the Car Park and within the Nature Reserve. Thorpe Lake is set aside for dogs off the lead, but the Wildlife Trust asks owners to have a lead available. There are five dog waste bins around Thorpe Lake to help owners to keep the Nature Reserve clean.
