This is a country park and local nature reserve managed by Calderdale Countryside and Woodlands Service. There are 60 hectares of mixed conifer and broad leaf woodland, set around a reservoir to the north of Halifax.

Visitors can enjoy the scenery, take the air and explore the woodland trails or the three permanent orienteering courses. You can also take part in activities and organised walks.

Facilities include car parking, picnic areas, a visitor centre with a small café, toilet facilities and classroom facilities (available to hire).

Many of the woodland and reservoir footpaths are easily accessible for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility.

Ogden Water currently holds the coveted Green Flag Award for parks and open spaces.

You can join the Friends of Ogden Water if you would like to get more involved. You can help to run events and volunteer to take part in conservation and environmental work.
