Priory Country Park
Priory Country Park is one of two parks in Bedford (plus one in
Kempston and also Harrold/Odell) that have been awarded Green
Flag Status by the Civic Trust. The Green Flag Award Scheme
recognises high quality parks across the country and indicates that
they are clean and well maintained places where visitors are
welcomed and the local community involved in the life of the
Priory Country Park is managed for both people and wildlife.
There are recreation facilities in and around the lake and slalom
canoe course in the main park and also quiet areas such as the
Finger Lakes for the benefit of wildlife.
