Corby Boating Lake

Cottingham Road, Corby, Northants, NN17 2UN -see map for directions Telephone: 01536 203700

Corby Boating Lake was constructed in the early 70's. It is a lovely facility at the heart of the town. The lake can boast a wide range of geese, ducks, water fowl and our residential swans. The recent environmental project has improved fishing stocks. There are also herons, gulls and kingfishers that visit the lake along with a host of woodland and garden birds.
