Some nice views and a pleasant walk around the lake but spoilt by lots of dog poo so not really good for kids. It has a cafe selling tea and coffee, amongst other things, and all at a reasonable price and with jolly, welcoming staff.

I often take my service users for walks here...beautiful walk and a lovely pond with lots of activities going on such as fishing and boating. Lovely place to meet people and lots of people come here jogging or taking dogs for walks. Toilets are on site however not the best and they tend to get locked up early. Car parking is plenty, it use to be free but recently there's a charge and feel it shouldn't be. A snack shop on site with options of chips, ice cream and general snacks..service welcoming and fast and clean.
