    I travel here once or twice a day for dog walking. I can walk miles..Beautiful countryside. Love it. Perfect for everyone. Just wish some of the younger age group would clean up after themselves.  more »

  • Great open park. I took my 3y/o on a bike ride around the lake (3km) and she loved it! Also plenty of activity parks for the kids too.
  • Car park is often littered, though they do have someone who cleans it in the morning. Other areas are littered and dog mess is a problem. The walks are ok if you stay on the footpaths. Parking warden patrols regularly. Make sure you have a parking ticket on display. No go area after dark. Car park used as a fast food dumping ground and for the idiots to race around on their mopeds or modified cars. The place needs to be closed to traffic at night.
  • Handy. Local. Has decent cafe, toilets, open spaces and a range of trails and footpaths to try out.
  • Pleasant and peacefull place to walk around. Visitors centre has decent Cafe facilities. 2 kids play areas and a wide selection of excercise equipment placed around the trim track. Ponds and lakes provided fishing facilities, day tickets from Visitors Centre.
  • Went for a bike ride. Good visitor centre and plenty of space for activities, parking and nice scenery. Great on a warm sunny day :-)
