  • A great place for taking the dog. We normally spend a couple of hours there. The car park is quite reasonable. There is a fishing lake. The woods are dense so sheltered even when it's raining. A small...  more »

  • I visit this venue a great deal, being an amatuer photographer and also being a local person. It is ideal for families, dog walking and being at one with nature.  more »

  • Great park for natural beauty ... ridiculus parking prices for the area. Shame that a facility run by the council, may be actually be excluding some families. This used to be my favourite walking area, but its no longer my preferred choice.
  • A lovely wood for a walk, only downside is car park charge. I was going to mark down for the condition of the toilets but there is a new block opening soon so that will improve the site and its usability.
  • A good country park with variety of habitats. We parked in the woods away from main care park as free. To park in main car park is £1.50 for 1 hour and £3.50 for upto 3 hours.
  • Lovely woodland park with large lakes and plenty of friendly swans, ducks and geese that are always happy for some extra food. The paths are wide and well maintained. It is a good place to walk dogs too.
  • A great walk around the lakes and woods. BUT it looks like they have done away with the upto 2 hr parking period. So if the dogs want a good walk it's a minimum £3.50 to park.... shame on you Thurrock Council!
