  • The park is a well maintained area that is great as a place for walking and exercising. A gentle stroll on the flat areas or a brisk walk or run on the incline as you rise up the hill towards a good place to meet and eat on top of the hill..great parking ..public toilets and enclosed areas for safe recreation with your younger ones.. Dog walking is a breeze with such a size of park..
  • Great park, good restaurant up the top, football and tennis courts are good there, with a very good sized play park for the kids. The main park is great for football and dog walking, really nice place to walk
  • Brilliant park with plenty of open space. Great for walking your dog or simply for having a leisurely stroll. There is a really nice play area for children and if you fancy a drink and / or a bite to eat then you can visit the restaurant in the old mansion house at the top of the park. Great views from here incidentally.
  • I love this park in the West of Reading. It has a nice playground for kids, dedicated areas to play football, tennis, basketball, table tennis, ramps for skating / cycling, internal paved paths, a pond with ducks, a restaurant, bowling green and there's plenty of parking. Not everything is in the same area so worth checking the map if going for the first time or looking for something specific.
  • Great park.. but huge problem with Gypsies moving in making it a no go zone. Height barrier needs to be put on the entrance.
