  • Nice to stroll around, plenty of benches, there are swan boats to hire for a short amount of time, people take the children to catch crabs with nets and strings with bait, most have crab races to let ...  more »
  • I went to Canoe Lake, it's a lovely place. There are a lot of swans so close you can feed them but a sign says don't feed or touch. You can sit next to the lake on the benches and look at the view out...  more »

  • This place is quite historic. At the museum you can see the history of it. It still has the potential to be a lovely place to go but sadly some people just don't put their rubbish in the bins or take it home and this has resulted in the beautiful swans swimming in rubbish! In the canoe lake cafe I didn't receive great service. It was almost like the lady found it a chore that she had a customer. Maybe a one off but I won't be going there again. Greens cafe is nicer but quite expensive. I found that the cafe at the model village was the best. Nice snacks for a day out, very reasonably priced and lovely people. 🙂 There is a fabulous play area for kids and mini golf is enjoyable. I feel the pedal boats and other water activities, when they are available, are a little over priced. Saying all this....I do still enjoy a visit.
  • Love it here, beautiful. Only downside is it is not looked after as people.leave their rubbish everywhere. pity
  • From visiting granny in the 70s to now little has changed, boats, model boats, ducks and ice cream. Perfect for the slightest sniff of sunshine with little kids
  • Lovely Rose Gardens. 2 cafes. Model village. Large play park. Lake needed clearing of pond weed though
  • Late season visit. Quiet... not much open at time I was there.
