We often go for a walk down to the park and along the riverside especially during the summer months. It is flat so ideal for the elderly and those with mobility issues. Good for couples and families a like.

Great open park with lots of birds including the favourites of Swans and Ducks. Great play areas for big and little kids and you can lose a good hour or two playing and walk king around the full park.
