This park is great for walking your dog plus the swing park is great for kids. When you visit you must call into the Courtyard cafe the food is excellent especially the pizza. Plus they allow your dog in to.

This is a good place to take the kids for a wonder in the woods or just have fun in the sand or picnic in the open air especially if it's dry!!

We visit here a lot as it is close to home. Great for a walk with our dogs rain or shine. Different walks all not too far. Good for kits as it got a play park.

Just back from a really long dog walk and two hours in play park with three kids! Brill park! Miges can be a pain but Avon skin so soft helps keep them away!

I couldn't believe how busy this place was on the day we visited, but there was enough space and room for everyone to still have fun on all the activity areas in the park. Looking forward to a warmer visit next time!
