Eric Wright Charitable Trust purchased the Water Park Estate on Coniston Water in March 1998 and converted the former mansion house into a residential outdoor adventure centre.
The stunning lakeside venue at Water Park Lakeland Adventure Centre offers bespoke outdoor experiences primarily for school groups on either a residential or daily basis. Almost three quarters of groups are Primary Schools who use the centre to increase their pupil’s teamwork skills, life skills and resilience. Corporate groups can also use the centre, opting for courses that are specifically designed to meet the company’s requirements, with evening entertainment available to enjoy at the end of the day.
Water Park can teach skills in most outdoor disciplines and can even offer accredited courses for those who may wish to pursue a career in Outdoor Education.
Full and half day courses are available with a selection of activities. Courses are designed following a discussion of the individual group’s needs and wishes. Please refer to the Outdoor Activities Page for example activities.
The old kennels building is a dedicated environmental base for completing stream studies, artwork and river studies.
