Limited parking available. First part has a lovely walk. There’s areas available for picnics - outdoor benches - and a kids outdoor park. Also seen an outdoor gym.

Great place to bring you dog for a walk. There is also a children’s play area with swings and slides. Lots of parking and toilets on site. The viewing platform over the lake is a great hidden gem.
