  • Lovely park, good paths if the weather is wet. Walled garden is worth a visit. Don't forget to keep an eye out for the fairy houses!

  • Always spend many happy times strolling round this place with the dogs and previously with kids on the play area, which is fairly modern and reasonably well equipped for a standard park. There is a pitch and put golf course here as well for both kids and adults alike.
  • Fantastic park, has a playground, crazy golf, and plenty of open fields. Great for a picnic.
  • Lovely park, clean and well kept. Good children's play area with something for small and older children. Large areas for multi use. Attached to a great pitch 'n' putt golf course.
  • Nice open spaces. Well maintained pathways. The ealled garden is a delight.
  • Nice park, I've been there once or twice. Hills are good for walking and burning calories!
