This is a great place to walk your dog many different walks ample parking. There are pony rides, toilets, and a very nice cafe food good as well some cakes are home made. It's well worth a visit for long or short walks. There is also a Golf course and a Bowling green there as well. Great place to go

Came here when staying with family nearby. Great place for a walk, play and a picnic! Woodland play area was great fun! Centre was great, nice coffee and choice of food and snacks. Little area for kids to play and colour too. Great outside space, enjoyable afternoon we had playing Frisbee!

This is a well later out park with open field and forested paths. There was also a small stream that the kids seemed to enjoy running along and wading in.

Good place to take a walk in the wooded areas close to town, many dog walkers but no real mess. Shaded areas and reasonably clear a well maintained walking areas. Shared with a golf course but safe if you keep of the fairways Best bit there is a Essex Wild life Centre where tea and cakes are in plentiful supply.... More
