  • Lovely park with play areas suitable for a wide range of age groups. Lots of space to walk and signposted trails to follow if you want. Great for dogs, jogging, and cycling alike. Easily accessible and quite cheap parking. Nice visitors centre. Toilets in a couple of places around the park.
  • Great place to bring children. My two pre-school children love the playground and seeing the water birds, and always end up managing to pester me for an ice cream too somehow. The only problem with this place is that the car park is nowhere near big enough at peak times. On busy days, there's often a huge queue waiting to enter the car park.
  • I have never visted Coombe Country Park before and I was not disappointed. It's free to visit you just need to pay for car parking which is very reasonably you can stay for four hours for £3.80 anything over that then its £5. For a family day out you can't complain! If you've brought your own food there are plenty of benches for you to sit down and eat. The benches are quite spaced out so you don't feel like you're on top of everyone else! There are two play areas one for younger children and another which is based off the ground similar to go ape but on a much smaller scale. There are a variety of ducks, geese and swans to feed. You can walk through the woods if you want to explore and there are lots of different walks you can take. You can walk up to Coombe Abbey itself up to a certain point and you view the surrounding gardens. If you enjoy nature, walks and want to view natural beauty then this place is definitely worth a visit.
  • Visiting Coventry for a few days and visited every day with the dog. Lovely grounds and walks. Refreshments were reasonable though had to sit outside with the dog.
  • Love this place. Often come for a nice long walk. Parking can be a bit crazy at weekends so we tend to go in the evening. Gorgeous place.
