This is a superb place to visit with children. The little zoo, the mini train, the play areas, all are perfect. The whole place is beautifully landscaped. A pure delight.

I took my niece and great nephew (4). He loved the train and play grounds and the monkeys but complained that there were no Tigers! As good place to visit with youngsters although I'm not sure how older children would view it. It wasn't really warm enough for us to use the paddling pool unfortunately but hope to next visit.

We usually visit in the summer when it's warm and the paddling pool is open. As long as the weather is good this is a brilliant day out for families with young children. There's something for everyone including animals, birds, multiple play areas, miniture railway, and lots of places to picnic. The entry price is reasonable too, seems unusual these... More

We have been on several occasions and have taken 4 generations who have equally enjoyed the day. There are lovely gardens and fountains to enjoy for those interested in a peaceful relaxing day just wandering around, particularly the... More

Excellent place for those with young children, or couples wanting to chill out for a few hours. Reasonable admission price. Great location on the River Thames. and good facilities. I highly recommend a visit

Beale park is such a great place to visit with lots of things to see and do! Especially for children but also for all ages! Great picnic spots, easy to drive too, don't go to the cafe inside take your own food as the restaurant is a rip off price!

There is a toy train ride - one ride is included in the ticket fare (additional rides are available for extra cost) not so large to make you tiring not tiny to finish in an hour or so....just the ryt...
