Spent the best part of the day here with my 2 nephews recently. They loved it - free parking, not over-priced cup of tea and ice creams at the kiosk. Take a picnic and you can have a great day out for the family for not a great deal of money. Excellent ...

I only found out about this park last year but since then I've been numerous times as my daughter (who was only one) kept asking every day to go. Lots of different attractions for different ages and doesn't just stick to the usual swing slide and round about. It's lovely in the summer when all the flowers are out and you can completely forget that you are in a city as it feels peaceful

I came here as a kid, and although it's changed a little it's essentially the same and now I take my kids here. Fantastic playpark to keep the kids entertained for hours, great gardens to have a walk around and a large grassed area for sports and picnics. Free parking as well. What's not to love? Great place to go on a sunny summers day. It's clean and tidy, spotless in fact. Safe for children. Will probably be taking the grandkids here in years to come! Keep up the good work!

First off Homestead was just a lovely place for young children with little activities and objects to swing on but it has been developed and now there is peaceful gardens to walk around in for the elderly or adults there are picnic benches, an ice cream stall ad they have even built a section for the older kids aswell
