The woods have excellent paths, with a wheelchair friendly route around. It's extensive enough to lose yourself for a short time (physically and mentally) but there are maps at various points for guidance. The 'Friends of the Woods' have made it very interesting and educational.

Lovely walk well maintained and informative. The snowdrops looked wonderful amongst some stunning trees. Spent about an hour here. The walk is very easy so suitable for all ages and ability - wheelchair users could also access the pathways.

Lovely woods, lots to see and keep people entertained. Plenty of sign posts and maps to keep people on track, plenty of litter bins to keep the area tidy. Easy to park and the ducks were great.

We were staying at the travelodge nearby and asked the receptionist if there was anywhere to walk nearby. She directed us to Aspley Woods. It was easy to get to and we wandered through and enjoyed it. Great public space.
