Onny Meadows Country Park
30 acre meadows beside the River Onny at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre
These riverside water meadows lie behind Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre. The Meadow’s surfaced paths provide access to the fields and pools via a wheelchair accessible viewing platform. In Spring and Summer the pools are alive with wildlife. Other unsurfaced paths range further and explore the banks of the River Onny.

The hard-packed, generally level, surfaced paths provide a half-mile (700m) circuit. In very wet weather the paths can be boggy in places but are generally very good. The circuit includes access to a pond viewing platform. Mown paths along the river bank are best tackled in summer when dry. There are some gates. Bench seating is located in attractive settings.
The Discovery Centre provides parking, a shop, toilets and a gallery café. It has an exhibition called ‘Secret Hills,’ and provides free wifi access.
