“Bad area”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Been to this park numerous times while working as a carer with a young lady with disabilities, one day in winter last year there was a group of teenager boys threatening to stab a lad, we called the police and the whole experience as made us never to go back.

“Mums first visit”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Loved the fact that you can get so near the lodge with a disabled relative, Public toilets please if the local authority cannot manage would it not be possible to get them through a company and they may charge a small fee, I sure a lot of families would benefit from this.

“great park”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Grand children love this park. Playtime on park football on fields,
ice cream and not forgetting feeding the ducks.There is only one downside cars stopped along side eachother,youths having a chat or doing some deals, they are not there for the park facilities,
This could become a real problem if not contained.

“Lovely place to explore!”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

This park has a great children's play area close to Rock Hall visitor centre - but it can become VERY busy, and sometimes with older kids taking over some of the more popular things. There are some fantastic pathways off the beaten track which allow little imaginations to really go wild! The footpaths are a little uneven and even overgrown in the summer, so good shoes are recommended. Plenty of open ground to play rounders/football etc. and for your picnics there are lots of benches as well. Toilets aren't in the visitors centre but in an old 'shed' nearby and we don't usually plan to be there long enough to need them as they're a bit grotty to say the least!! Worth taking bread to feed the ducks, geese and swans, but if you have nervous or very young children I'd suggest you feed them from the walk ways around the ponds as on the grass you can get mobbed - and there is a LOT of poo on the grass! An ice-cream van usually appears in the afternoons, other than that there are no other facilities, but with not even a fee for the car park you really can't complain.
