“Brilliant animal sanctuary”
Review of Trent Park

Reviewed 4 July 2014

Since my son reached toddling age, we've been regulars at the Trent Park Animal Sanctuary. While the whole of Trent Park is lovely, the sanctuary really is the jewel in its crown.

The animals are all rescued: goats, pigs, shetland ponies, chickens, deer, sheep, owls, geese, swans, herons, ducks, ferrets, guinea pigs and all manner of birds. They are a great way to introduce the little ones to animals, and they can get close enough to all of them to make it a memorable visit for them. The staff are all friendly and happy to tell you about the animals, and best of all it's very cheap (£3 for adults, free for very young children. Not sure of cost for children above toddling age).

There are a few playground rides there for the children, which are OK without being great, but keep our son entertained. There is also a small shop selling snacks and a lot of educational posters and signs dotted about the place (ferrets really are brilliantly weird animals).

The only problem with Trent Park is the parking, which on a sunny weekend is highly traumatic. But that aside, I can't recommend the whole place, and the animal sanctuary in particular, highly enough. And if you don't support it, you may well lose it.

Trent Park is lovely for walking the dog or going for a walk with a loved one there is a cafe in the grounds so you can stop for a tea/coffee the countryside seems to go on and on yet the road outside is busy.

Love this country park as have been walking there for many years with my dogs. Acres and acres of wonderful walks. There is a pets corner with various animals and birds for the children to visit. Go Ape for the more adventurous. Middlesex University is set in the middle of the park with the Sassoon building amongst the site. In Springtime the area around the University site is a mass of yellow as thousands of daffodils bloom. There is usually a cafe in the car park near the Cockfosters entrance, however, this is presently out of action and a temporary facility for coffees, ice creams etc is on site.

When you're in the middle of Trent Park you could be in the middle of the countryside. It's gorgeous, feels very isolated and it's open very long hours in summer. Great for dog walkers and runners. Lots of free parking. It can get very crowded up the main entrance, but there's another entrance off Hadley Road where fewer people go and also has plenty of parking.

Trent Country Park is great for anyone who wants to have a ramble in the country - without cows (which I'm scared of) and the risk of getting lost. I went on a hot sunny day and it was bliss being able to do a long walk in the shade while looking at a glorious view across hay meadows to ancient woodland. Only a short walk from Cockfosters Tube station.
