I go here every couple of weeks with my grandson to feed the wildlife & enjoy the park. Great for families, walkers who like easy exercise, dogs & the elderly. Lovely cafe & play park for kids.

What a lovely place to stop, take in the lake, have a cuppa and chill out. Modest car parking fees, great facilities and calming and peaceful environment. Can't be beaten. Looking forward to a return trip soon.
