  • Park and woodlands area, with both natural and tarmac pathways. £3 for parking all day at weekends, coffee shop cafe that serves hot and cold snacks and drinks.
  • Very nice place. Very good place to take dog out or to go for a walk with family.
  • Lovely area, lovely people and a great place for walking, running and being at peace.
  • Rarely go there now....... It has been ruined for dog walkers
  • Nice park with many beauty landscapes and a cafeteria
