  • Great local park, great for everyone.. play areas for kids a small choice of wild life to view along with river views & a large pond (with great birds /ducks to view) huge fields to enjoy aka football pitches.. great walks to enjoy & for the kids to safely stretch there legs.. a small shop is also present to buy refreshments along with on occasions an ice-cream van' I've been coming here for years when I was young to turning the tides & my kids being able to enjoy the sights & sounds. I'd happily recommend this for anyone to visit.
  • Nice big park, massive grasses area for sports. Band stand and pond with plenty of ducks/swans etc to feed. Kids play park, 1 for little kids and 1 for older kids. Little cafe is great.
  • Lovely green space. I went to the play park with a 5, 4 and 2 year old and they all enjoyed it. The birds kept them entertained too.
  • Can't fault this lovely park. We spent 3 hours here with my 4 yr old and my 93 yr old grandmother enjoying the play area, a walk, the ducks and a lovely tasty lunch in the cafe. V reasonable prices and great quality food served very fast. The flower beds in the park all beautiful and bursting with colour. What's not to like?
