Spent a lovely few hours with our granddaughter on the swings, slide and long horse. Walked around the lake and spotted geese, moorhens and a water vole. Plenty of space for football and frisbee. Good toilet facilities and a café. The lovely weather helped too.

Had a very pleasant day, with a 5 year old granddaughter kept her amused despite many places being water logged, Free Parking makes a different, would highly recommend for a cheap & cheerful day out. Plenty to do & see.
