A fantastic place for a stroll in the sun. The lake is a wonderful place to walk around and you can observe a lot of nature. During the summer months, boats are able to be hired to go rowing on the lake for a reasonable price.

I have come hear as a couple, with the children when they were small, with the children as they have grown up, with friends, on runs. Whatever the occasion, a get together, exercise, to enjoy the weather, row on the lake, walk round the lake, go Lakeside theatre, grab an ice cream, have a kick about or do some sports,... More

Not too big, not too small, and packed with interesting nature and architecture. Some of the trees are very expressive and the water birds are very curious. The squirrels that congregate around two beautiful bridges at one end of the park will be curious about you too, and may follow you when you walk away. It's almost guaranteed that you... More

Absolutely gorgeous grounds, there's boating on the lake in the warmer months which would make for a very romantic date. There's a lovely walk to do around the lake and there's a playground for children that's well kitted out. It's really easy to get to on the bus from the city centre.

We couldn't walk round the lake as intended because it was raining but we had a snack in the restaurant and it was entirely satisfactory.

Visited multiple times now and each time is equally as good. Made use of the boating lake which is very reasonable and great fun, the walks around the park are calming and the exhibitions at the Lakeside centre are always worth a look.

Been here today with partner and our 11 week old daughter to a friends kids party. Free parking and lots to do for kids and adults alike. Cafe is quite expensive. £1 for a can of fanta or similar so if possible take you own or purchase from the ice cream van to save some ££.

Had a good time at highfields had a picnic, ice cream, went on a boat, kids played on the park and a nice walk round. Everything was priced reasonable and we all enjoyed it.

This park is really nice. Big open spaces of greenery, a beautiful garden and also a lovely lake. Renting a rowing boat is a must and its not too pricey too. A really good summer's activity for all ages!

A beautiful park with a wonderful boating lake and loads of open space for picnics. It's also a good spot to walk the dog around, and enjoy an ice cream on a nice summer's day.
