Love this country park! Such a peaceful place to walk or in my case recently to run around. Lots of friendly people always out enjoying the countryside. Good places to bird watch, walk and enjoy the lovely surroundings.

Beautiful park for walking, running, fishing or cycling with lots of walking areas and bird life for interested in those things. There is also an amazing place for refreshments when you're done.

I have seen powered scooters regularly in the park. The paths around the lake are not laid to cement, but paths are there. There may be a bit of vibration . It i a lovely place to go .
