  • Great little Park, very popular for play areas and the cafe, cycling, running, scooters, football, Picnics, dog walking. Large duck pond with geese and swans too. Family events and music events are quite regular. It can suit everyone. The friends of Sandall park also do a great job.
  • Small park nice walk around duck pond and cafe serves nice quick food and baby changing facilities
  • Just a local park, but does have nearby conveniences even better because it has three pokéstops 😋
  • Great park, kids love it.
  • It's nice to spent time with family
