We go there frequently, always with a picnic. It's absolutely free (except a small amount for parking). There are several different trails and we go at different times of the year. It's great for a long walk in nature, there's poetry (Tom Hughes), exellent signage,...More

Simple walks around a Lake and further trails if you want them. Pay for parking but that's all. Peaceful, easy walking in pretty surroundings.

We visited with the intention of walking our dog but were disappointed when we discovered that dogs have to be kept on a lead. OK - fair enough, it's the nature of the place. We followed the way-marked trail and after 30 minutes turned back...More

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.
