  • 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.
  • Excellent place to visit with a variety of things to do. the park features a cafe, ice cream stall, a boating lake with pedal and rowing boats for hire, a relaxing Chinese garden complete with waterfall. Further to this the park features a woodland trail and mini golf. Entertainment is also provided via a floating stage and a naval ship re-enactment.
  • What a lovely park! You can take a walk around, feed the ducks and swans, take a boat out on the lake or a pedalo dragon! Nice to sit by the lake with a cuppa from the cafe. Take a walk up to the little house above the waterfall
  • Had a lovely day here, it's a colourful place with pleasure boats for floating along the lake. We also went into the Glen where there are some lovely carvings. The cafe is good at peasholme too. Delicious ice-cream.
  • Loved this park, plenty to do and a lovely walk around. The squirrels allow you to feed them from hand so make sure you have monkey nuts! Lots of scenic walks within the park itself.
