Looking for some where to park we found this oasis of calm, ideal if you have energetic kids. 5 minute walk from centre of town. A place to return to.

Lovely little park with woodland and a stream running through it-nice for taing a stroll in the spring sun.

Lovely green space, riverside walk with magical hidden walkways for kids by the fountains, good kids play for all ages, I'm 54 and had to go on the zip wire, large grass area for football and picnics, indoor pool and cafe.
