A circular easy-access walk around Grebe Lake, within Whisby Nature Park near Lincoln in Lincolnshire. Whisby Nature Park comprises a series of lakes surrounded by grassland, marsh and scrub. The lakes have been created from the remains of sand and gravel quarry pits, and now support a wide array of wildlife. This trail performs a simple loop around one of the lakes, passing several bird hides, creating a short walk for everyone to enjoy. There are many other trails and paths should you wish to extend your visit. The park is open every day from dawn until dusk. The walk is almost entirely flat, with just some very gentle slopes over short distances, and follows tarmac or compacted stone paths for its full length. There are no stiles, gates or steps on route, meaning it is suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs or disability buggies. Dogs are welcome across the park, including on this trail, as long as they are kept on leads. If you want to give your dog a run after the trail, there is another lake circuit (around Thorpe Lake) where dogs can be off the lead. The paths are a minimum of 2 metres wide. The maximum uphill gradient is 1:16 and the maximum downhill gradient is 1:14. The door widths into the bird hides are a minimum of 80cm and there are viewing windows designed for those in wheelchairs. You will find toilets, a cafe, adventure playgrounds and The Natural World Centre within the park. Allow 1 hour for the walk (plus extra time to explore more of the site and attractions).
