Great place to walk the dog and thrilling to see herons flying around their nests. Happily surprised not to see much dog poo as we can only find one poo bin near the woodland centre on that side of Abbey Lane, though the other side is better supplied.

A great place to visit with kids and dogs, with various pathways. You can click some beautiful photographs. It is quite far from the city center, but definitely worth a visit, if you are a nature lover.

Don't be put off by the negative comment! This is a small outdoor cafe which offers a great service for the size of its premises. The drinks are excellent.
