great landscaped area

despite heavy usage by the locals, this park still remained uncrowded and quiet with BBQ facilities and great walks and lake to take in the scenery.

Great place to take a picnic and toys for kids to play with. I loved that you can take picnic with you and there are places to hire for BBQs although you have to book in advance for these. There are plenty of walks to go on and loads of open spaces

A good choice to dog walk, take children and generally have a day in the fresh air. Parking and refreshments are convenient and of sound quality.

Walking your dog, strolling hand in hand with a partner, jogging, listening to brilliant orchestral performances from the LSO whilst watching a spitfire flying overhead, this venue has it all.

Good place to stretch your legs at a weekend. Car Parking ok and lovely ice creams available. Worth a look around the church situated in the grounds.
