Well worth the visit Great track through the woods on the kids bikes The scattered play spots were all entertaining Can't wait for the kids to be big enough to go up on the high stuff

Some great play equipment for the kids, but little wildlife in this conifer plantation. Great value for what we paid nonetheless.

I used to come about 15 years ago when i was small, now my time to bring my daughter. We had a lovely day, the car park was really really busy. Lots of people, children & dogs but loads to do. Bring your own picnic and lots of water for the long walks, remember dog poo bags too if you... More

Discovered today was a special countryside day in the park with loads of attractions for all to take part in. Plus the steam railway had an open workshop day, just the thing for small boys to enjoy. The play park is excellent with one area for older children and a sand area for younger with excellent activities, frames, slides, swings... More

All very helpful for a first... More

Yesterday saw the world & his dog at Moors Valley. Not long after arriving my doggy had to go. Could I find a dog bin - NO - it took nearly 20 minutes to find one. This will not encourage people to pick up their dog's mess. A few dog bins near dog parks and around the lake would be... More

fantastic walking paths around the forest & lakes, we had lovely day out clear skies, but parking £8 a bit pricey, could have been better, never mind the park is worth it!. The path in the Moors Lake were flooded, we had our wellies & was fun!
