Cam here for a relaxing walk after the two of us had a stressful week, constant improvements have helped increase the pleasant experience of the reserve. It was nice just sitying watching the water fowl at the lake.

Full of wildlife, especially good for bats. Not well signposted and you probably wouldn't know it was there unless you're a local. Great to have a little walk and get out of the town.
