  • Lovely place to explore the outdoors. Easy to follow trails, some of which are buggy/wheelchair accessible. Great place to take the kids with open and wooded areas. There is a cafe, information centre and we'll maintained toilets.
  • Although it is always filled with people, I always get a sense of quiet and calm here. I think everyone goes there for that same reason. Beautiful place.
  • Great place for dog walks although they do have some restricted areas where your dog needs to be on a lead. Still great.
  • Relaxing, well made paths and board walks (suitable for prams, wheelchairs etc). However, quite busy compared to other green spaces in the area. Maybe this is because it's run by the Corporation of London, and on their website, so probably attracts quite a few people from London. Because it's busy, it's never truly quiet. If you don't like to hear kids shouting / screaming, look elsewhere - there are plenty of green spaces in Buckinghamshire.
  • A nice, quiet, relaxing place to spend a sunny afternoon. Plenty of hidden walks and shady places to sit and picnic.
