Had a lovely day. Good long walk to burn off the children's energy. Lots of photo opportunities with great landscape and views. Park area for children very good. Well maintained.

We usually walk our two dogs around the beacon. Great Views of the local area. You can cycle or run round if you so wish. Great for kids to explore, especially the area near the lower car park.

This park is excellent for walking within the safe borders of the park. The views from the hills are awesome and the facilities are okay.

This is lovely place to visit for a walk with friends and family and is a play park for younger children to enjoy. I would highly recommend this to others.
