Conservation Volunteers 

Starting in January 2017 the Ranger team at Grafham Water is planning to establish a volunteer group that will help with the management and conservation of the habitats around the water.  Volunteering is a great way to get outdoors and meet new people.  No prior experience is needed, you will be given all the training you need.  You just need to bring enthusiasm and suitable clothing (plus biscuits!). We are planning to meet twice a month; on the first and third Thursday. If you are interested or would like some more information, then please get in touch via email

Segway Experience

Segways are great fun and easy to ride. There are frequent opportunities to experience these ultra modern off terrain vehicles at Grafham Water Park. To check available dates (booking is essential) please visit or telephone 0845 3193747.

Children's playgrounds

There are exciting outdoor areas where your children can play safely at Grafham Water Park.

Go to Marlow or Mander car park for well equipped playground areas to keep your youngster amused for hours and they must be supervised at all times.
