Ideal place for a pleasant walk or let the kids safely ride their bikes. Feels like you are in the countryside. Different circular routes around the park, either easy flat routes or some hills to challenge yourself.

Good paths for cycling, dog walking and enjoying nature. Plenty of good paths. Needs a few bins other wise a good upcoming park. Even has some historical things to show the kids.
