Next to the village, the Mere covers an area of 50 acres, and is situated within Marbury Country Park, once the estate of Marbury Hall before it was demolished. The Mere is popular with birdwatchers and water sports alike, making for a brilliant day out.
Northwich Community Woodlands, of which Marbury Country Park (see above) is just one part, are situated to the south of the village. The land has been reclaimed in recent years through the partnership of a variety of organisations to result in land boasting many different habitats and a fantastic area for recreation.
