  • So peaceful, beautiful and calming. Lots to explore, plenty of good play equipment and a lovely cafe onsite too.
  • Estuary walks along the river Wyre where it meets Morecambe bay. You can walk towards Fleetwood or Poulton taking in beautiful scenery and industrial heritage. Tea room by the main car park and guided tours available for school parties. I believe the park rangers can arrange specialist rugged electric wheelchairs to access the paths. The path towards Fleetwood is great in bad weather as it is well made. The area is also popular with twitchers.
  • Beautiful place especially when the sun is out.. u always get friendly fellow dog walkers too
  • Best reserve in the area alongside the river Wyre. Great views and first class family Park and picnic facilities. Popular with families and dog owners. Bring money for toilets!
  • Excellent walks however a dog is mandatory. We were reproached for being dogless.
