  • Loved seeing the animals and the park is good the only thing I would like to see Is the acceptance of debit card payment s as we could feed the children as we had no cash only cards 
  • Took son and grandson here for a walk and to play at the park. Loads of well worn paths beneath the trees running along a cool stream idyllic really. Then up past the horse paddocks to the park. Great...  more »

  • Lots of open space, a lovely stream with bridges to cross and also fords if you are not bothered about getting your feet wet. A small farm and horses to touch as you walk by. Great for a walk or bike ride. If you just want the kids Park then there is the visitors center for a drink while the kids play. Free parking.
  • Lovely walking routes for adults and children. Places for picnic blankets to sit and relax. Brilliant for walking dogs big fields to run about. Quiet peaceful and lovely views
  • Play area isn't really for younger children unless parents are going to help them up on it so they can go down the slide, no swings for younger children either however other than that the place is pretty good. There is a farm to see a few animals not any but fun for young children and also there is great pathway to walk.
  • It's a good park we lots of things to do there. You can play football in the fields, go to the farm, visit the horses or go on a walk which goes to Selly Oak. A good day out.
  • OK park. Not very open and mostly just good for walking paths. Not my husband to see but it was quiet and the animals were nice.
