This is the first time I have visited this place, it's a great place for walking, whether this is with the dog, taking the children out, as a couple or by yourself or even for cycling. The nature park is a bit out of the...More

We've been a few times in all weathers and always enjoy the walk. Quiet and peaceful with a choice of routes to take so always something different to see. Wildlife, plants, insects...a great place to see the seasons changing throughout the year.

Have been several times to the Blackberry paradise of Walton Nature Park. Small parking area and walking through tree covered ponds and across little bridges. No facilities - just a peaceful walk.

We saw many swans and wonderful dragon flies. Clear easy paths and our dog loved it. Just a lovely spot with a packed lunch and the blackberries were just waiting to be picked.

We hadn't been here for years and our memory was of lots of mud. However, we have visited twice in the past week and have enjoyed nice walks in this lovely calm spot. The footpaths are well maintained and the signing clear so you can...More
