Ideal for a brisk walk plenty of paved areas as well as non paved areas we came invia carpark which is small. A map at the parking area would be helpful we found one in the centre of the park. The wildlife area was interesting

This park has so much potential but its been sadly neglected. All you will see here are dog walkers, grass often over grown and dry. little beck that is filthy dirty. dont waste your time going out your way to visit here.
