The title says it all really but this park does offer a pleasant amble - especially as a place to walk off flatulence caused by too much Christmas excess - but the Dream itself is a strange and uninspiring piece. Don't let it spoil a nice walk though!

Lovely walk which we have done a couple of times, this time though we struggled to park as the pub car park is barricaded off. The walk itself is great a little steep in parts, but the views are great and worth it to see the Dream. The Dream itself is very impressive. The only downside this time was the... More

Lovely place for a walk with the iconic dream (or big head as my son calls it). Not much in the way to do other than walk or for the kids to explore in the trees but lovely none the less. The only issue is the amount of kids on motorbikes recklessly flying around the place.

We went for some fresh air and decided to take a walk up to the Dream. The surrounding park/forest was lovely - really peaceful and great to have some fresh air. The paths are well kept and well sign posted (not that you really need them). The structure itself is impressive and so unusual. They have planted/cleared trees in such... More

A lot of money went into building this sculpture however, during the design stage they should have stood back and looked at it from a distance and from this they may have noticed what a lot of people have noticed, IT LOOKS LIKE A PENIS!! Known locally as the knob of the north this is the first greeting you get... More
