This is located near where I live and it's a great park! So much to do and see. Woods, woodland walks, pond dipping, a meadow, a children's park, toilets, a coffee shop even a beach!! What's more the parking is free and the viaduct is a wonder to stand under

Been walking around this park for years on weekends, and now have found out more about it with the information boards that have popped about the tuning in the woods. The staff are friendly and will help you with any question even when they are working on something else. The cafe is good and the bacon roll was very nice... More

After reading the reviews and we were in the area we decided to stop by. It was busy but we managed to park and we're pleased to see that it was free parking (think the charges run Easter to September).
