  • Excellent place to take kids and pets and after a 10 min walk a well maintained play are is awaiting kids at the other end of the park with a small café for food ice cream and drinks.. At the back of the park is the tower and band stand.. Various paths to follow and kept clean and well maintained area.. Sure to be brilliant for the kids.
  • Great playground for children, nice little cafe selling sandwiches drinks and ice cream. The playground is next to the cafe and you can sit outside while your little one plays.
  • Brilliant for kids and keep fit enthusiasts lovely cafe top notch well done friends of lock park for your fund raising to keep the children's areas and of course the tower open
  • A nice big park with lots of interesting features. The way that the paths are laid out means your dog gets a much longer walk than first appears.
  • Great Park, good for lots of activities. In my opinion just needs LED lit (but not bright) lighting around the paths to allow people to run or walk at night that can't get there through the day.
