Great place

Really good for a scenic walk, feeding the ducks and letting the kid(s) loose! Nice pub on site too.

Lovely walks around the lake. Lots of wildlife. Dog friendly. Great cafe on site and a decent park area for younger children. There is also some adult fitness equipment. Ample parking unless a forecast for a hot day at the weekend or school holidays!

Pretty dirty to be honest. Wasn’t impressed as could potentially be so good if council or whoever helped give it some attention.
