My brother also hired a baby seat for my nephew and we hired a trailer buggy for our daughter who is 6 as she's not able to ride a bike yet. We went around the tarmac track once (which was enough for me as... More

I love riding here, doesn't take too long to get around, the tracks and trails are signed but you don't have to stick to them. I love that if u see a trail you can turn into and see where it goes. There are major improvements coming to from what I've read and been told. I did ask staff and... More

great place to go for a walk. If you're feeling fit, you can walk all the way round probably no more than an hour. When you've done this there is a café where you can buy snacks, warm drinks etc

My husband and I took our son to Fowlmead in March and were really impressed with the large and unique park for children. However, in July I returned with our son and my friend and her child visiting from America and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. Luckily we walked and did not pay for parking. When we... More
