  • Always love this place to walk around the lake and sit down for a rest. Downside is the basic free public toilets those awful metal ones with a couple of bits of wood screwed on for a seat don't feel clean . An out door kiosk that does nice coffee. An indoor cafe that is average. Disabled toilet need the national disabled key to gain access. Nice view of lake with waterfall. Small putting green is fun. Larger small golf course pitch and put worth a visit. Boats and pedalos for hire on lakeside. Tree walk nice but is probably a bit steep for frail and elderly (leave them resting by the lake).
  • Peasholm Park is beautiful and great for everyone. There's the lake with the dragon boat pedalo's if you're feeling energetic, geese and ducks waiting to be fed by little ones or just enjoy a gentle walk around. Then of course you can walk up the glen through the Victorian fern garden to find the magical fairies...just follow the robin - his beak will point you in the right direction....
  • Beautiful looking park with gorgeous gardens. The steam train which runs to the park is lovely but a little pricey when you have a big family. Some good activities and the pedaloes looked good. Toilets and food establishments are available and plenty of places to sit down and take it all in.
  • Beautiful & very well maintained park. Extensive tree & shrub collection with many uncommon varieties. Lovely streams & lake. Good seating provision
  • It's an amazing place with long hidden walks, various bird's to feed and squirrels that are so tame they'll take food out of your hands. Beautiful nature maps to follow and see trees that are extremely rare along with a hidden garden to find. Small lakes to sail your own boat around. Paddle and rowing boats to hire. Spectacular displays on the lake like the Naval Battle, band's playing in the stand and little festival's for everyone to enjoy.
