  • This is a nicely laid out park and it's a pleasant place to have a stroll. It's rarely as busy as the other parks in Coventry so worth seeking out.  more »
  • Did the murder mystery from 'Treasure Trails' around this park and surrounding areas, very peaceful and enjoyable.  more »
  • Really big playpark here which amused my kids for hours, despite the cold. Big space to wander around and the fairy houses are cute to watch the kids in.  more »

  • 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!
