  • Fantastic little gem hidden in a busy town. Something for everyone. Large green areas. Two play parks, one for small children and a separate one for the older ones. Has a lake with paddle boats to hire. Also has an area where children can see the various animals that live there.
  • Lovely park, two playgrounds for older and younger kids. Lake to walk round and pedalos as well. Usually several bouncy castles. There's a mini zoo and the cafe is lovely. Recommended.
  • This is a great place to walk your dogs as it has a special place that your dogs can run off lead. There's the rise garden with benches to sit and admire the flowers and plenty for the kids with sand out, slides, swings etc. There's also an outdoor bowling green for summer use. In the summer months there is boats on the lake and a mini train takes a trip round the lake.
  • Took the dog for a little walk around the lake. Then went into the dog exercise part which is really good for him to run free. Met some great doggy people too
  • Big area to let the little ones loose. Good cafe but couldn't see any gluten free options. Lots of extras on in the summer..bouncy castle and peddle boats. Free parking although not enough.
