  • A great place to take the kids to burn off some energy. Plenty free parking. A small clean great cafe. Play area, playing fields, 3 ponds, a small wood and some interactive displays. All in picturesque well maintained tidy countryside. Herrington is a former pit and a fine example of wasteland can be repurposed.
  • What a lovely place this is.... great walks and park for kids ... nice little cafe bit pricey but nice. Free parking which is always a plus. Lake with swans, ducks and we also saw a heron. Well worth a visit
  • Nice park with lots of open spaces and masses of swans, ducks etc on the big lake. Models on the lake Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Only spoiled by some (not the majority) irresponsible dog owners and litter bugs. Regular maintenance work by staff good to see. Small cafe and kids play area well used.
  • A great place to visit with the family (including the dog, which is not allowed in the children's play park). Nice little cafe, although we took snacks and a flask of coffee. There are toilet facilities, however on this occasion they were incredibly smelly, even the car park smelled from this.
  • Fantastic place to visit with many different routes. Free with onsite parking, child and dog friendly, great walking and cycling paths. Hundreds of swans, ducks and other birds. Highly recommended.
