Spent a few hours wandering the paths around the Reserve. Definitely recommend. 3 quid for car park, which seems annoying but the reserve seems pretty well maintained, so fair enough. Remember change for parking machine, but paying by card in the centre was easy enough....More

Nice playground and walk, kids loved the zip wire and bouncy bridge seeing all the birds. Nice cafe with good selection. Signage could be improved as difficult to see on bends and behind trees and £3 parking charge is a little off putting.

Nice and clean bit could do with a few bins being provided and maybe some extra picnic tables. Daughter liked the ducks and was able to use her scooter.
