I take my 2 year old daughter every so often to feed the birds & ducks, there's a nice walk around the lake. There's events every so often, there's a 7 1/4 inch gauge railway around the lake. There's a cafe & a play park

We went when luckily we had good weather. The cafe is a bit expensive but unlike a lot of places they don’t mind people who aren’t customers using the toilet. The train that runs round is brilliant

Attractive park. Not very big - 20 minutes or so to walk all around it. Nice bandstand. Lake with ducks and wooded area with grey squirrels. Interesting jubilee sculpture in the shape of a diamond by the old fashioned but empty glasshouse. Nice café.

Had a walk round the lake and saw a number of rats just strolling on the paths. It was the middle of the day. Is this normal?
