“Fantastic playground”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Should probably be No 1 attraction in Matlock. It's all free, the playground is great for the kids, there is a cafe and it's all immaculately kept. Also right next to Matlock shopping streets, which have loads of food to offer.
The only downside is parking, it's a bit of a nightmare and it's not cheap.

“Great for children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013 via mobile

We went on a hot day to the paddling pool. Was great the kids had a blast also park equipment in the pool area. Some interesting sights-mainly the people. And it's free what could be bad about it!
The train wasn't running which was disappointing. Apart from that can't fault it

“Lovely park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Went in a period of very hot weather. Lots of lovely shade by the river and sun elsewhere. Boating lake nice and our young boys loved looking at the ducks. Boys played in the water play area. Crowded but not too bad and everyone looking after their kids well.

Very well kept park and lovely amenities

“Nice Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

Nice park with activities to keep kids entertained. Boating pond is good value and water park looked ok. Train only goes in a straight line forward and back but costs pennies and kids got a kick out it. Coffees and ice creams are ado good value. Worth a visit on a nice day.

“Prize Winning Municipal Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

What should a municipal park have? Matlock probably has it. Boating, miniature railway, children's play area and paddling pool, pitch and putt, tennis courts, skateboarding area, crown green bowls, fine planting and .... tea rooms. All to a high standard.
