Pugneys Country Park is a 250 acre site which was previously an open cast mine as well as a sand and gravel quarry and was turned into a country park in 1985.

The park has two lakes, the largest of which is a 100 acre watersports lake. This caters for non-powered watersports such as canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. The smaller of the two lakes is only 24 acres and is a nature reserve which is overlooked by 2 bird hides, enabling visitors to watch the neighbouring wildlife in their own habitat.

The largest lake at Pugneys Country Park has a footpath which runs all the way around the lake and is approximately 1.6 miles long, making it suitable for running or taking a leisurely stroll. You could also visit the historic Sandal Castle which is located just off the Lake.

The Watersports Centre located in Pugneys Country Park, opened in early 2005 providing excellent facilities including; changing room, classrooms and conference facilities.

The water sports facility also provides excellent refreshment facilities at the modern cafeteria, where hot and cold food and drinks are available 7 days a week. Offer a range of home cooked foods, cakes, scones etc and we pride ourselves on using fresh produce from local suppliers. They have picnic tables outside which people are welcome to use. The cafe also doesn’t forget about our fury friends and sell dog snacks and are happy to provide drinking water.
