It's an oasis of calm and greenery (the noise of the Canada geese apart!) in the midst of industrial Stoke On Trent. Surprisingly pleasant to walk around and see the variety of ducks and geese. The small cafe is exceptionally good value and the staff are great. Thank you.

Plenty of grassland around too for some ball sports. The walk around the lake is pleasant and on a proper path so the kids can... More

Visited here today and my LG loved it the play area is well equipped and designed for a good age range. The walk around the lake is about a 1 mile and pushchair friendly.
