River Hamble Country Park is a perfect picnic spot to get together with friends and family for a scenic snack along the riverside, woodland trail or play area.

There are plenty of picnic benches and litter bins on site, but on busy days if the bins are full, please take your picnic rubbish home with you.

Enhance your picnic with hot drinks, ice creams and light snacks from The Barn. We also have vending machines dispensing hot and cold drinks, and snacks.
