Plenty of space in which to run around, and there is also a games area. The vistas of the house from the other side of the lake are worthy of a 'Jane Austen scenery'. The trees... More

Great park spoilt by the council. Driven by the need to make money is disappointing. Not dog friendly.

In that time I have seen the park develop from a quiet unknown unkempt location to something that now attracts everyone from dog walkers, couples, families, cyclists and everyone who just fancies a stroll. A of the renovation of the park has... More
