“small and hot but....”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

first its very hot in there as you would expect but the is an abundance of wildlife and greenery to look at, if I went again I would go when not so sunny, just to ease the heat factor

“Park ok but not much in jungle”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We visited here on bank holiday Monday. The park has large grass areas , childrens play area, sand and water area, cafe, exercise equipment, walled garden and Jungle expieriance.
We have been before . The childrens play area is your run of the mill park equip , slides swings climbing frames etc. a few seats for parents to sit on but not enough i think. Theres normally an ice cream van near the play area.
We didnt go in the cafe but the toilets are next to the cafe and we did notice you have to pay to use them.
We were looking forward to the Jungle Experience , expecting it to
be similar to Roundhay park in Leeds. We were a bit disapointed. Its £1 entry per person. Only saw 2 butterflys. Some little birds walking around , some terrapins and fish. Its quite small and only took us no more than 15 mins to get round. Theres a few different paths and they are not sign posted with which way to go so saw some bits twice.
When we had come out of there we had a short walk around the "walled gardens" an area in sections with different themes plants and flowers.
Between the park and water and sand area there are picnic benches but most are in the shade under trees. Also near the park area there are some outside exercise equipment for the use of both adults and children.
All in all it passed a couple of hours for us.

“Absolutly awful!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Everything was dead, no animals, and they now charge to get in which is ridiculious! would not go back or reccommend.

On another hand the Park is lovely, would reccommend a visit to the park!
