The splash park, the park, the miniature train though it broke down, the crazy golf all made for a fab day. Don't spoil this place. Its a place parents go relax, kids can let of steam and there's something for everyone even our dog

This is a lovely Park in an otherwise built up area. Great place for a pleasant walk, with play area for children, crazy golf, paddling pool, angling, cafe and even a miniature railway open at certain times. It is also a nature reserve.
