  • Amazing place to walk around, there is a waterfall at the back of it, there are a picnic tables near the said waterfall, ducks, the cafe’s food is pretty good, the sailing place has amazing classes on sailing with amazing teachers but you have to pay for parking. I highly recommend visiting if you are in the area and have time to spare.
  • Great for walks, very scenic. Sailing, fishing and feeding ducks. The cafe is pretty good for a snack too. You have to pay for the car park.
  • We love looking at the various waterfowl on the whole area not just the lakes near the cafe, shop, garden centre and restrooms. Another delight is the model boat enthusiasts and their various crafts. The less populated lake is for dinghies and small boats with quite an active boat club. The whole area is surrounded with woodland and nature trails amongst a host of wild flowers and bushes. There are two large weirs and several waterfalls both big and small. Only one thing stops me from giving it 5 stars and that is the paths you have to traverse. Perfectly passable for the able bodied but you cannot be pushed in a wheelchair as it makes your teeth rattle and every two seconds you are brought to an abrupt halt as your chair gets stopped by the unavoidable stone chipping they spread everywhere. I fail to see why they cannot tarmac at least one of the three routes up to the largest weir, as I and other wheelchair users can only 'see ' these inaccessible areas by pictures on able bodied friends cameras!
  • Love this place . Great for a walk around the lake with the dog or children . Loads of great walks. Lovely upgraded cafe with brilliant staff . Ample parking. Can't say enough about etherow park and how good it is . If you visit you'll absolutely love it
  • Love this place and so do the kids, great day out in the countryside and a picnic... well looked after, no electronic stuff just a great family day out!!!
