    A free day out. Was so sad to see they weren't as many animals as there used to be. On the upside the improvement to the play park is fantastic. My nephew loved running through the bamboo tunnel.  more »

    We weren't sure whether or not this would be a large country park and knew nothing about t at all. Out for a run we thought we'd take a look. Reasonably easy to find when you don't know the area that ...  more »

  • Some animals to look at and a gentle walk for anyone with a pram. It now time for NLC to put more time into the‚Äč place. It looks like they have started; as of June '17, the tree top walkway was nearing completion of it's re-fit. Hopefully they keep going with the rest if. At the very least, get rid of the weeds, you have a parks department at your disposal! Incidentally, one of the male goats in the "Boy Zone" animal pen pee's on his own beard. Not sure how, but there you go!
  • A shadow of its former self. Decades of being neglected has reduced this place to a shadow of the park in the 80s or 90s. Hardly any animals, only thing to recommend it for is a bit of nature walk for young kids. Honestly, give it a miss. Go to Calder Glen instead.
  • Very few animals now. Play park is great. Kids love it! Visitor centre is a bit tired but cafe is nice and reasonably priced.
  • Not a bad little place could do with revamp lots of Various rare breed sheep&goats to keep the kids occupied.
  • Good play park for young kids. Pond with ducks. Some sheep ,pigs and goats. Nature info in cafe and fish tanks.
