Nice and clean, well kept. Great place for the kids to play and for the dog to let off steam. It’s now become a regular spot to visit.

It is a nice green area about a 10 minute walk from the main precinct with boating pond and rowing boats for hire during the good weather. A large children's play area and plenty of parking.
