  • The park is nice place to spend a sunny afternoon in the summer with a small fair ground, sweets, and some interactive history lessons. They also have various events for adults such as the beer brewing workshop. We come here in the winter months for the Sunday Brunch at the Wainwright Hotel - it's good value with coffee/tea/juice included with your meal. The usual brunch fare is laid out along with a plethora of freshly made sweets, a cheese platter, and fruit. The only negative thing we always seem to experience is that we struggle for refills on coffee/tea each time, but if you don't mind asking and have a bit of patience, you do always end up with some hot coffee.
  • I have given five stars but this place is worth more. What a lovely end to our holiday. The entrance fee may sound on the high side but everything is included, which is brilliant. The food, ice cream and drinks were sold at a very low price and for a change they didnt take advantage of the customers. Some of the staff are volunteers, and every single one made our visit a beautiful one. What a brilliant day out and I cannot recommend this place enough.
  • Went on a super cold day which sucks but it's was still great. They had fire pits around to warm up. Gingerbread making place was good. The overall place is great with winter activities. The horse ride was awesome even though long lines for it. Beautiful place to take any age person. My in laws both loved it and that Never happens.
  • Our experience at the Selkirk Grill was excellent. The staff are very professional and friendly. Our group thoroughly enjoyed their menu choices; variety of desserts and drinks were delicious. We are looking forward to our next meal at the Selkirk Grill. Thank you.
  • This is our family's favourite city destination! We have been visiting the park with annual family passes for about 6 years. I love that there is so much green space so even if it is busy you can always find a quiet spot. We love the special events like Once Upon a Christmas, Day Out with Thomas and railway days. Staff and volunteers are always friendly and helpful. Great place to learn about and see history!
