Such a beautiful place to spend time. The people that volunteer their time are amazing and the park is fabulous. Would recommend anyone to go visit and remember to donate in the small donation buckets around.

Great views, good walks around the sculptures and garden settings. Developed from an old disused quarry and maintained by teams of local volunteers. The park is a great place and well worth a visit. Plenty of parking including overnight for self contained vehicles and caravans.
