I actually came here to see a show that was in the park, but after the show we had a lovely long walk round the park (which is huge). It's well looked after and has a kids play area, picnic area and massive area's where you can play football etc.

A really lovely park and in some ways a throw back to years gone by. I thought it was well maintained with a nice lake, tennis courts, restaurant and bandstand and of course large areas... More

We arrived on a good day and so the children were able to play on the play areas that are dispersed around the grounds, there are gardens that you... More

Good park, well kept with summer activities like fairs and open days etc. Nice clean grass in the main and becomes very busy as soon as the temp is above 15 degrees.
