  • exceptional place to visit staff were so nice and friendly, excellent guide very knowledgeable !! We were so very impressed with Terry the bird man , this guy is amazing he has a real connection with the birds, we were so amazed the birds know him and he knows them. we seen them come to him and eat from his hand (finches, Robbins, bluetits, wrens, crows .) excellent place to visit great for children and adults ! So go visit and ask for Terry the bird whisperer !!! Eddie Dempsey.
  • Lovely spot to bring the family, nice walk and tour. We forgot to bring home some baby gear and they very helpful held it for us after we called. Well recommend.
  • Great spot for a journy back in time. This park has every thing you need to relive history. The smell of the camp fires burning as you walk through the different areas. A great day out for all the family. The pictures will tell there own stories
