A short walk from bus stops, a car park which is open in day light hours. Also brilliant access to a play ground and the farm. Best on a Friday evening to hear St Giles Church bells being rung.

I have taken my dogs many times for a walk usually parking at the top end of the park entrance by Hazeldene Road and have found it very enjoyable especially being able to watch the aircraft landing or taking off so close. Train enthusiasts can also stroll to watch the main London/Birmingham line that is near the Marston Green station.
