Nice place to take the dog for a walk, or a stroll with the children. Its nothing special, however it does get busy during the summer.

This was the first time we visited the Park. We found the place to be perfect for a long walk, the shortest route being about 3 1/2 miles of quite flat paths. One end of the lake is for water skiing, next to that sailing boats, there is also a mini railway, craft shop and Cafe with pretty good fare.... More

Great place to have a nice long relaxing walk with the family or alone. They have a lovely little café where you can stop for a spot of lunch and a chat.

Very cold, but beautiful scenery and walks. Good parking and a nice cafe. Presumably a bit busier in the summer, but lots of space so should be fine.

I came for a walk around and found the park to be very clean and tidy. The toilets were also very clean. I would recommend this place for family days out.
