There's plenty too do for the little ones, but not much for couples looking for entertainment. There is a lovely swan park across the road that does lovely coffees looking over the lake. Check out the fray golf too.. It's great fun :)

We have always found this park great value and kits of fun. However today after checking website for opening times we drove across the county to the park today only to find it with open gates but no rides in action. Very disappointing for everyone. Don't rely on website call first to save a wasted visit.

Our 2 year old loved the many rides he could go on, plenty for all kids to play. Worth spending an hour or two here

This fairground is well looked after and has many types of attractions for young and old. Such as the waltzer, dodgem cars etc.. If the weather isn't good there's a substantial soft play area, a bowling alley, a popular restaraunt, ( booking advisable)

Went for the afternoon as we were up for the bank holiday weekend visiting friends. We ordered £7.50 in clubcard tokens and this gave uus 70 ticketes, most rides were 3-6 tickets a go so kept us busy for most of the afternoon, lots of shops and eateries as well as amusements and traditional fairground attractions. My son loved it.... More

Not as many rides as it first appears. We were surprised on a Saturday & Sunday that after 6pm the park was dead. Probably because the wristbands cant be used after 5pm

Although not the greatest of fairgrounds it was reasonable. If you download the offers to your phone it is better value. Some of the rides are showing their age but well maintained. We visit once or twice a year and the older daughter (15) is getting bored with it some new rides would not go amiss. The local authority could... More
