As an extended family we went to the park for a stroll. Over 2 miles later we had completed one of the walks at a gentle pace through woods, fields and around the lake. Visiting the zoo from outside the enclosure was a fun way...More

There is a lot going on at this park. Something for everyone! From small sailing boats to rock climbing. We use it mostly for brisk walks around the lake to chase away the cobwebs from the “night before”. It really does wake you up, especially...More

You can easily spend a whole day at the park and still not have seen it all. Wonderful clean park, lovely boating lake and hidden gems here and there. The farm/zoo more like a farm, is enough to satisfy the very young. My 3 yr...More

It's a big place to explore with forests, open fields and a lake. You can't really fish in the lake, except for certain areas and the requirement of a permit. Also they don't allow drones or remote control aeroplanes flying around, so make sure you...More

Highly recommended as always. I grew up visiting hainault and it's only improved with time. I now love taking my children. We visited this week and hired a row boat for £10 for 30 minutes. Leave a £10 deposit and it's well worth the money!...More
