Pleasant park with lots of walks and lakeside views. Good car parking facilities but it's longish access road full of speed bumps!

A beautiful area to go walking with the dog and the kids. Lots of wildlife to see as you walk round. Lovely place to be no matter what the weather, just remember your wellies if it's wet.

This is a good walk for all ages - even if pushing a buggy with baby on board, fairly level and smoothe too.
