  • Plenty of open space to enjoy a picnic

  • There is a great skate park for older children to enjoy

Apex Leisure and Wildlife park covers over 42 acres and it is a beautiful spot to relax away from Burnham town centre and the beach which can get very busy during the summer months. You can take a lovely walk around the lake which will take about 40- 50 minutes where you will have the chance to spot many types of wildlife. This is a fantastic spot to visit in Somerset if your little ones enjoy feeding the ducks!

There is a fantastic play area for children designed for both toddlers and older children which is reflected in the varied items of equipment. This includes swings, a slide, a roundabout, seesaw and a tyre swing. For older children there is a trim trail which runs parallel to the footpath around the lake. It has various pieces of keep fit apparatus at intervals along its length.

There is a large free car park from Marine Drive and you will often find an ice cream van parked up there waiting to tempt you with sweet treats!

For a cheap day out we love this park. It is well maintained and there is plenty of parking right by the lake. If you walk around the lake to get to the park it will take a little while but it is a lovely walk, and you can take lots of breaks to feed the ducks!
