  • Good rec, great café for ice creams and snacks!
  • Rather basic park. Many playing fields and a nice eatery and some woodlands. Nowhere as nice as Woollaton Park, for example, but has good events such as Goose Fair, bonfire night, weekly Parkrun.
  • Great place to enjoy and relax. We used to play cricket and football here
  • Its a good place to relax in the green with a fresh breeze, you are relaxing while your kids are playing... its just AWESOME
  • Nice open area, good parking and playgrounds for the kids! There's also a sports area and an outdoor 'gym' of sorts.
