We have visited many times, has a great amount of open space, a lovely play park which is maintained well. excellent visitors centre often with free or reasonably priced activities. Nice cafe with balcony outside seating, which is lovely in nice weather. plenty of FREE parking too.

I really love coming here, especially in the summer. The park is huge and really well maintained and there are some great places to explore around the woods and nature trail. The mini train ride and bouncy castles are also very popular with the kids.
