We enjoyed the tree walk, the cafe food was excellent and we enjoyed a walk around the park. There is an Artisans workshop area thats worth a walk around, there is some wonderful crafts on display and available to buy.

Thanks to Stephen who made it all such fun on Friday 1st August 2014. We will never forget the wonderful experience we all had. Stephen was so helpful and encouraging to us girls in our 40s who competed the tree top trail. The park is fantastic with so much to do. Its a must for teenagers and for families. Thanks... More

we had a lovely afternoon this week at the park, we had a picnic and then the children went out on the pedal boat, the two lads over the boats Declan and Matthew were so friendly and helpful, we would recommend everyone to give it a go.. great value for money also.
