Visited this park in October with my family and it’s nice to see such wonderful smiling people. I enjoy visiting the duck pond here and having a picnic with my family and just spending the afternoon here.

As parks go it's visually nice enough, but a bit boring if you're trying to keep young children entertained. There are cut throughs from the back out to Mill Lane. There is a more child friendly park just on the northern edge of Blaby.

Best place in South Leicestershire to walk your dog. Can be short or extend as far as you want over the adjoining footpaths, right from south Wigston through to Countesthorpe. The park has nicely shingled paths and a car park.

Lovely little park where children can run around, play games and enjoy wildlife. Lovely walk around the park with the added bonus of a lovely lake. Only problem I've encountered is it's a shame people who walk their dogs don't clean up after them!

Ideal place for a short walk, only takes about an hour altogether. Lovely park, with a pond about half way round and the ice house. Well worth a visit, and popular with dog walkers too.

We walk this trail regularly, and the park itself is a beautiful part of an old estate. We extend our walk through the wooded part, then around the river area and old Blaby village before returning to Bouskell Park with its ice house and pond...More

This is an interesting piece of history, tucked away behind the park. Hardly a day trip but well worth a visit.

Good park on the site of the old village of Blaby. Lots of dog walkers. Walks can easily be extended in several ways including canal and woodland. Also a fenced off ice-house to look at. Worth a visit but take a map to extend your...More
