Make sure you have your wellies on for the winter months as it can be quite slippery under foot. Normally takes around 45mins - 1 hour to walk around this lovely place. It’s great for dogs as bikes aren’t allowed. Costs £3 to park and...More

Lovely little walk around on mother's day. As with most parks there was a £3 parking charge which was a little disappointing as we only spent 40 or so minutes there. Only managed to walk part of the way round before the paths got far...More

Not suitable for cycling, only walking and then only if it is dry. Over the winter or any wet period there are parts which are impassable. Best suited to walking (dogs or otherwise) or fishing. There is a café though I must confess I missed...More

This is one of my favourite parks to take the dog and the kids to for a medium length walk. Both play areas are fabulous and there are plenty of poo bins on the circular walk. Unfortunately it's all let down by the cafe. At...More
