  • We love walking around the jumbles, lots of wildlife and well cared for paths. A visit to the strawberry duck pub is always a great way to finish the walk!  more »
  • We loved it! :) Child friendly and dog friendly. Lovely little cafe/ice cream shop there. Public toilets available. Quite a few benches and picnic tables. Be prepared for a bit of a walk though as it is quite big :) gates for car park close at 8pm but you can still get out you just can't go in. Times might be different in the winter though so just double check before you go. Would definitely recommend for a great day out :)
  • Nice gentle walk around 3 reservoirs. Helps if the weather is nice. Parking was a bit of an issue but the pay & display meter wasn't in use so it was free. Toilets could do with a makeover but if your desperate they're better than a bush. Great food at The Strawbury Duck which you'll pass or there's a few picnic benches scattered about. Just watch out for wasp's/bee's in the summer...
  • One of my favourite dog walking spots, the main path around the reservoir being well maintained. It can get a bit muddy in places during wet weather so good shoes are a must. The cafe is good for drinks and snacks though not open much through winter. Plenty access to the reservoir for dogs to paddle. There are other paths that lead off but I haven't yet explored these as they are quite hilly. It's worth noting that to walk fully around the reservoir, a very small section goes on to a road. It is a quiet residential road but cars are often up and down it.
  • A pleasant spot for a stroll.wear good footwear, as in winter it can be wet underfoot. Plenty of parking (currently free, as the machine was broken). Importantly, there are toilets in the car park. There's plenty of adequate parking, and on the mild winter afternoon when we visited we had no trouble parking up. The only downside s the lack of dog turd bins, so people just leave the plastic bags everywhere.
  • Love this park. Great for walking the dog. Running. Mountain bikes. Picnic. We walked past the sailing club one day and they invited us in and took the children out on the water for a taster session.
