Melton Country Park: Is an area of open space some 137 acres (55.5 hectares) in size, just 10 minutes walk from the centre of Melton Mowbray. There are several large areas of woodland in the Country Park, including formally and informally planted areas, tree pens, and focal points such as the Oak Tree Avenue and EU Tree Circle. The area of woodland close to the visitor centre contains a newly created Woodland Walk and there are several other footpaths which criss-cross the park, including, at the southern end of the park, tarmac paths which are fully wheelchair accessible, and, in the northern end of the park, access paths. Various public footpaths also cross the park, including the Jubilee Way, a fifteen and a half mile (24.9km) walk from Melton Mowbray into the picturesque Vale of Belvoir. National Cycle Way 64, which runs from Market Harborough in south Leicestershire to Lincoln, also crosses the park at its southern end.
