nice friendly park with lots of info boards on the wildlife around you. Great educational visit for children. Lots of ducks and a heron round the lake. Cheap eats cafe and lots of benches to bring your own picnic or eat the cafe food outside.

Thank you for your review. We love hearing about people enjoying the park! The picnic benches were bought by Friends of Sandall Park so we're glad they're a celebrated feature! Friends of Sandall Park.

Such a lovely park, easily one of the best in Doncaster. The volunteers do such a lovely job of maintaining everything in the park and the toilets well done!
Only thing that could make the park better would be if it got a little splash park for the kids like in other boroughs.
Was lovely seeing all the little ducklings today.

Thank you for your lovely review! We think we're Doncaster's premier park but we're a little baised ;) Our volunteers, who work so hard in the park, were pleased to hear your praise for their work when we shared it.

Great park, and some great walks round the lake. Lots of geese, ducks and swans etc. It is a shame that the rowing boats are no longer on offer. Loved them when I was a kid! But never the less my kids thoroughly enjoyed playing on alllllll the park equipment, I struggled to get them to leave! Nice clean toilet facilities and a nice cheap cafe for a pit stop :)

Thank you for your great review. Did you know that much of the toilet maintenance is completed by volunteers and we purchase the toilet rolls from fundraising activities? We're glad it's appreciated. Friends of Sandall Park

Took our new puppy here last week on her first day out, I have walking difficulties but thanks to the volunteers at the park who are making great improvements to the pathways my husband myself and Ruby our puppy managed a lovely stroll around the lake.
It's good to see the wildlife at the park is now thriving and there were lots of baby ducklings to be seen.
We stopped at the cafe for a well earned drink and our puppy was the star of the show, everyone stopped to talk to her including one of the lady volunteers with whom we chatted for quite a while.
The jobs the volunteers are doing are making the park a lovely place to be and its good to see the toilets are now open again. We will be using the park more often now

This is a lovely park on the outskirts of Doncaster. It has toilets and a popular cafe (can't comment on the food here though). Ample parking with options to park across the road in the small shopping centre if needs be. Plenty of benches to support a slow amble. Usually a number of fishermen at the lake side. There are a couple of decent play areas for children, often an ice cream van, oodles of room to run around if you have the energy! Great variety of birds, informative boards around the park to help you identify them and they also have a number of routes mapped out so that you know how far you have walked when followed. The top field has a small outdoor gym. Great day out.

Thank you for your review of the park. Did you know that the toilet maintenance, the information boards you enjoyed, much of the play equipment and flowers are thanks to a volunteer group? We really love to learn about people enjoying the park. Friends of Sandall Park
