  • Decent place to go for a walk, some say at night time people go dogging there, not my type of thing to do but i guess it is for some people.. no hate tho... up to them
  • Brilliant for Families and birdwatchers. Plenty to see and spaces to play. Good place for a picnic.
  • Pay & display car park which I didn't expect and the machines were broke so you had to go to the poorly signposted golf shop. Lots of smokers standing around ruining the experience. The lake was beautiful and the kids liked the ducks geese and swans.
  • Our local nature reserve. Penny Flash never disappoints. Lately we've seen kingfishers on every visit, heard Cettis warbler and the Bunting Hide is a super place to see Bullfinches. Worth a trip in all weathers!
  • This is a lovely country park with good walks ideal for bird watching with public hides,and swings and amusements for the kids, well worth a visit.
