Huge park, a nice lake with loads of ducks,parking space,easy to access, a huge grass pitch for playing football and whatever,tennis courts with rental possibilities we love this park always taking our little one here .
I have visited the Park for a number of years but improvements in recent years really make this a great Park. Well kept, there is Water, fountain, wildlife, cafe and Children’s play areas means there is something for everyone.
Lovely park, good to take the dogs out. Nice and local to me, don't know why I dont go here more often but I will now. Can even have a nice coffee at Raphael's, who allow dogs outside on their terrace area.
Great place to take the children and also for dog walking. There is a little cafe for hot and cold drinks and snacks. Also a restaurant for lunches or dinners. Tennis Courts, Duck pond, play areas. Lovely little wooden statues of Percy the park keeper...More
We take our Granddaughter to this park every time we have her stay over.
We start off feeding the ducks,Geese and many other breeds of water fowl on the lake.
After that we stroll through the park to the nature area with carved wood benches...More

Visited mid-week with a group. Very friendly and efficient service; good food with a reasonable choice. Main drawback is the car park being across a main road which is a problem when the weather is raining.

If you enter from the Main Road Gates and walk along the path with the lake on your left you should follow the path round as it seems to move through trees and slightly away then from the lake with its resident ducks. If you don't move off the journey along the path it leads naturally to discover on your left a lecturn with information on the author Nick Butterworth adjacent to what initially seems a small area providing seating and displaying carved wooden figures of his character, Percy the park-keeper with his wooden wheelbarrow. It isn't very far from the Main Road entrance but you will find that you might enjoy a quiet few minutes sitting on a bench enroute, watching the squirrels, birds and ducks which is incredibly relaxing. Please don't be tempted to give wildlife bread as it is extremely bad for their digestion. Milli's cafe which is a walk further along the path by the grassed areas,football pitch and near the childrens' play area, sells small bags of wildlife food - or even do your own research on line before visiting the park as to what food is appropriate for squirrels, birds and ducks - children would really enjoy this extra activity and don't forget to bring along some plain paper drawing books and pencils or crayons to draw a few of the animals you see. Even if the little ones can't themselves manage this activity they will enjoy watching you or evening colouring in your sketches. Your local library will hold some of Nick Butterworth's charming stories for you to read to young members of the family before and after your visit; the grey squirrels (equally as charming , agile and cheeky as their red squirrel cousins) are delightfully friendly and if you sit quietly with a bag of suitable edible treats they will jump up to within centimetres of visitors, even accepting a morsel or two offered, carefully, by hand. Remember these are wildlife, though. Overall this is a lovely natural environment which makes you feel quite humbled by seeing some of the areas nature first-hand. Enjoy and respect the park.
