Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot fault the park at all, some lovely walks enjoyed by my family. Only downside is the customer service in the cafe. They shut early due to staff illness (we weren’t to know), there was a sign up saying closed but people were coming and going plus sat in there eating. My wife popped her head in my eldest daughter and was spoken to in such a rude and patronising manor that my daughter ended up in tears. I accept it’s frustrating having your plans on a Sunday changed by one of your co-workers being ill but there is no need to take it out on customers.

Visited in April & May 2023, as well as on many other occasions in previous years. 4 separate car parks enable you to pick a spot to enter the park at the point that suits you. There is also a decent cafe and 2 sets of public toilets at 2 of the 4 car parks. There is "Stick Man" trail, as well as an opportunity to see and feed deer. Lots of open space for games/picnics and a lovely lake with fishing opportunities and 2 sets of children's playgrounds

All the lovely Stickman trail has gone! This includes the large stickman/family kids could climb on in both the playgrounds, plus the whole area where there was the xylophone and natural pretend play stuff. Really disappointing. The tunnels under the little hills have also been removed. Wasted journey for us.
The handful of new carvings aren't a substitute for all the things our kids enjoyed playing on most disappearing.
It's a drive for us and it's not worth it now. Will stick to great notley play trail for our family.

The stick man trail as advertised on the website is mostly closed due to renovation work. This should have been done before the school holidays started as many families will be disappointed. We travelled 45 minutes to this venue and had it been on their website about the closures, we would have gone to a different park. Please update your website about the closures.

This is a lovely area on the northern edge of Brentwood with woods lakes and walks of varying length and complexity for young and old alike. A boon for people living in restrictive areas and some good play opportunities for children. Yes there is a car parking charge but it is reasonable and these places do not finance themselves. Overall good value and an asset to the area.

This is the place for you if you don't mind coming across human excrement because the toilets aren't open and don't mind coming across Adders sunning themselves in the long grass.

Covid Lockdown meant that the local country parks became a God-send with opportunities for exercise.
Weekdays the park was reasonably quiet but weekends were heaving - normality is beginning to return.
Over the last year we have explored parts of the park we did not know were there and seen the wild deer many times. Whilst some paths got muddy (and have now dried to a lumpy surface) generally it has been good access.
There are options of the woods and more open areas including the large fields leading down to the lake. Whether you just want a 20 minute stroll or are looking for a more bracing 90 minute workout, a great place to visit.

The rolling landscape covers over 520 acres of woodland, meadows, grassland and lakes. Apparently, the place started as a medieval deer park during the 12th century and is likely to have been associated with a manorial centre near St Peter’s Church.

Unfortunately, none of the history is written on information boards, though there are a few maps around the site and a set of steps to (I don't know what - no details anywhere!). Fallow deer are still kept and can be fed by visitors – but please use deer food (notice explains!).

The estate was owned by the Tower family from 1750 until the Second World War. The house and park were used by the forces between 1943 to 1945 and apparently suffered considerable damage. The hall was demolished in 1951 after a fire. In 1953, the park was purchased by Essex County Council to save it as an open space for the public, and it is still a Grade 2 listed historic landscape. But where is the evidence to show that it should be listed?

Great place for picnics, walks and playing with the kids though!
