Great to chill out with friends, enjoy the Ballon Fiesta or mountain bike trail if you're up for it! You can't beat it on a nice summers day.

Great location for a walk, run or cycle, with very reasonable parking prices of £1.20 per day, with a friendly cafe as well.

Our family enjoyed a lovely walk around the park, seeing seeing and enjoying the scenery. We were able to keep to dry paths which were also great for pushchairs, scooters and bikes. We'd be happy to visit again.

Cafe could be a lot better, but it’s not really making much effort. Park run on Saturday morning so good to avoid then.
