Old ironstone quarry site turned into a park. Lots of areas to walk around as well as a park/activity area. Getting busy in summer with some visitors in the park/picnic areas who need a lesson in tidying up after themselves.

We visited with primary aged children and a dog. All had a great time exploring the woods and playground. The high ropes were noted for another day - not with dog of course!

Hi Lyn, Officially dogs must be kept on leads, however, depending on the time of day it can vary. If there are very few people and other dogs around then really, it should be ok to let your dog off the lead, depending on the... More
