Plenty of parking spaces, this is mainly a fishing venue at the side of the river Dearne, plenty of woods to enjoy and walk your Dog but please keep Dogs on a leash when walking past the fishermen.

Spent a couple of hours walking round here, some really nice walks and views. Unfortunately this park is really let down by the litter and dog mess. They are strewn throughout park. Won't be returning.
