Visited with two dogs. A really good area for dog walks and for children. Plenty of signs explaining about the flora and fauna. Plenty of wildlife to see. A cafe would be a wonderful addition.

Sorry, there is no formal play area. There are various things to do like feeding the ducks, walking along the aerial walkway, watching wildlife from the bird hide and playing woods.
