Beautiful park with pitch and putt, rowing boats, little train, playground area, train up to Shibden Hall and a cafe. Children can feed the ducks or go exploring in the vast grounds. A great family day out

With lots of history of the Lister family at the Hall ( now being filmed for TV series) together with a lovely cafe, boating lake and miniature train, we had a lovely day.
