  • Beautiful little country park, very serine. Great for a stroll. Or even a roll as it is completely flat and wheel chair friendly all the way round. There's a roaring weir at the far end which adds a nice touch. The site used to be used for industry so in some places you will find old barges that have been taken back by nature, sluice gates and the like. It's nice to have a read of the history on your way round.
  • This is very nice. There is plenty for all ages to enjoy. There is s good selection of aquatic wildlife. The mandarin ducks are very colourful and worth a viewing. The cafe is adequate. There is a lovely waterfall at the far end which is definitely worth seeing and woods for the more adventurous to walk through.
  • Not a bad place for a stroll on a fair day. Some reviews mention goose poo, yes there is a fair bit. The park keeper needs to house-train the birds to keep it to a minimum. Worse is the piles of dog mess. The animals are just doing what they do, but the lazy humans know better. There was even a pile next to a sign saying that there are no "dog poo fairies".... The cafe seems good, but to be fair I only drank there.
  • Great place for nice easy walks with lovely scenery. A lake with yatching, fishing, model boats and lots of ducks and geese. Good basic cafe.
  • Nice long flat walk but it's very muddy in places and they charge £1 for 2hrs, £2 for 4hrs, all day for £3. No wonder nobody fishes it anymore. The cafe and open centre is good put the park is looking very up-kept.
