Great visitor centre with small zoo the entrance fee is nominal. The playpark is child friendly for all ages. Picnic and bbq spaces available nearby and really good walking paths for all ages.

Great for the little ones, not much there for bigger kids, park is great since being refurbished. The zoo is rubbish tbh.

This park has it all, a fantastic play area for the kids, ice cream, space for picnic and bbqs, forest walks and a small zoo with small animals but enough to keep the kids interested. Recommend for a day out.
