  • Grest place to blow off steam and walk a dog or children ha. Nice cafe but not always open, lots of free parking  more »
  • Brilliant for young and old. New pirates ship was a hit. Little cafe was good value for money. Enough here for children to play safely in groups or by themselves.
  • Took grandchildren to this park , first time visit for me, with some good equipment for the kids to play on and a toilet plus snack shop serving hot and cold drinks and sweets and ice cream. Pay here for the mini golf . So definitely killed over an hour
  • Brillant place to let the kids run wild safely and take the dog for a run around easy parking and extras around mini golf, golf a cafe, gym etc
  • Nice day here. A shame that a part of the play area was under construction but the kids enjoyed themselves anyway. Also the area that they're working on looks like it'll be brilliant when it's finished.
  • Great place for young children, has toilet facilities and a small cafe.
