Good bit of exercise, take a stroll around the water park, always plenty going on, then call into The Boathouse for some fine food, put all the calories back on!!

So many reviews talk about litter - I saw none! In fact I saw yellow-jacketed workers walking round the park collecting any stray pieces. This is a lovely stroll with kids and dogs. And the cafe at the visitors centre was nice with lovely service.

If you love nature you'll love sale water park! Deep forestry, stepping stones, geese, spotting birds etc it's wonderful. Plus great exercise for young ones

We have a Springer Spaniel and this is the perfect place as she can run around all she wants. Fairly quiet, though there’s sometimes litter laying around. Still a wonderful place!

Not a bad place for a walk or run along the outside, you may have to dodge the odd dog poo dumpling as we have some people that are too lazy for this task of picking it up and throwing in a bin. Car park...More

Decided to go for a long walk as the weather was lovely. I’d been told how lovely Sale water park was and it really was. So many people enjoying the walk, families, couples with dogs, runners and fishermen. Very peaceful.
