For those of you that who enjoy a lunch time stroll we have put together some maps of basic walking routes around Granta Park.

Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to be more active and become healthier. Getting outside and taking some time away from your desk has also been proven to have great mental health benefits.

Perhaps you could use these routes as inspiration as a stepping stone to something amazing!

Our three woodland walks can be found on the Park map in yellow, here

We hope to add more walks, on and off the Park, in the coming months.

Please note that all walks are undertaken at your own risk and Granta Park accept no responsibility or liability for any loss or injury. Walkers should wear appropriate footwear/clothing and be aware of natural obstacles that one might expect to encounter on routes such as these. Take particular care on uneven surfaces. We would also remind you to take due care when traversing the public areas surrounding Granta Park.

Nursery

Nursery

Operated by The Old Station Nursery Group the Sunhill Day Granta Park® offers a maximum of 90 places between the opening hours of 07:30-18:30, Monday to Friday.

The premises have been carefully designed to offer children a stimulating and exciting environment to play and learn in. Each room has its own secure outdoor area, offering all children interesting and challenging experiences both indoors and outdoors in all weathers. The outdoor areas have been created to develop children’s early science skills, and to help promote children’s creative and critical thinking. 

The Montessori ethos is used, alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage. The Montessori approach focuses on the immense capacity of children to absorb information by giving them the freedom and independence to learn at their own pace. This is based on the deep understanding of the way children learn, through choosing, trying and doing things for themselves. Activities are designed to teach children independence from an early age, including self-serving their own meals, and washing up and tidying up afterwards. 

Sunhill offer both 15 and 30 hours government funding for eligible children, which is stretched across 50 weeks of the year, and also accept childcare vouchers and payment via tax free childcare. 

More information is available online at www.theoldstationnursery.co.uk, or alternatively contact Rosie on 01223 892010. Email grantapark@tosn.co.uk to arrange a visit.

Car share scheme

Free to join, the Granta Park® car share scheme is a great way to set up a lift share with other staff members commuting to Granta Park. Granta Park has its own dedicated car share website which offers members a quick, easy and secure way to make contact with each other.

grantapark.liftshare.com

Benefits of car sharing include saving money, reducing local congestion and getting to know your colleagues. Remember you don’t need to own a car to car share, you can just search for a lift too.

We are slowly introducing ‘car share only’ parking bays across the Park; to use these you will need a permit.

Please see here for a step-by-step guide on how to register for the scheme or request a parking permit. The ‘car share only’ bays are currently available within the Parking Groves and Riverside Buildings car park.

In March 2020 we launched Smart Parking at Granta Park, this allows those who car share to authenticate their journeys via a simple app on their phones. This new authentication process now gives us an accurate representation of when the dedicated car share bays are in use, ultimately allowing us to make sure there are always enough bays to go around.

Foot & cycle paths

The N11 cycle route connects Cambridge to Sawston and there is a dedicated off-road cycle path linking Sawston and Babraham. There is a permissive cycle path through Babraham Farm which provides a link between Babraham and the Granta Park main entrance. This route includes a footbridge with cycle wheel ramps across the A11.  Additionally a link to the cycle route along the A1307 was opened in February 2017. This link provides a traffic free cycle route through The Babraham Institute which connects to the existing cycle network.

These cycle routes provide a cycle link between Cambridge and Granta Park as well as the villages to the south of Cambridge including Trumpington, Great Shelford, Stapleford, Sawston and Babraham. A Cambridge to Saffron Walden cycle map can be viewed here

In addition to these routes, there is a 2m wide asphalt surfaced shared footway / cycleway along the northern side of the A505 between Granta Park and Whittlesford Parkway railway station approximately 4km to the southwest of the site.

A narrow 1m to 1.5m wide footway / cycleway is also provided along the northern side of the A1307 between Hildersham and Linton, to the southeast of Granta Park. This provides a cycle link from Linton, with agreement with Cambridgeshire County Council to potentially extend the route to Granta Park in the future.

If you are not keen on cycling alone, why not find a cycling partner? There is a cycle journey section available through the car share website it is free to join and will match individuals cycling the same route so they can cycle together.
