We live a short walk from here. We recently bought a puppy and it’s the most ideal place to take him! The lakes are stunning, there’s lots of friendly people with dogs and children. Anyone of any age would enjoy a wonder round!

The Second nicest walking spot in Crawley. Great for walking the dog. It is also great that there are leaflets containing different routes you can take. I spent a good hour or two strolling through the forest.
