Harrold-Odell Country Park image

Harrold-Odell Country Park is an area of north Bedfordshire's beautiful countryside for you to explore. Set in 144 acres, the Park's main features are two picturesque lakes, which along with river meadows, woodland and tranquil banks of the Great Ouse river, give a great variety of scenery and makes for a great day out.


Harrold-Odell Country Park is owned and managed by Bedford Borough Council. Park staff work in close co-operation with the Friends of Harrold-Odell Country Park. This co-operation takes many forms, most notable of which include conservation work and fund-raising. Conservation work has resulted in significate lengths of the lake banks being protected with spilings. This involves weaving a willow fence that is placed in the water ahead of the banks to protect them from the erosive force of waves. Fund-raising has enabled the Park to repplace the bird hide destroed by arson with a new and enlarged facility. THere are many other ways in which volunteer 'Friends' work with the Park Rangers.
