I do like to come here to run. It's got well maintained flat paths and lots of room. The only issues I have had here are that some dog-walkers do not 'clean up' after their dogs. This is a shame because this is also a popular park for children to play. The pitch & Put green is lots of fun.... More

A great place to walk dogs and enjoy the wildlife on the river. A large and well-kept park with numerous benches to sit and enjoy the views.

So relaxing just strolling along the river from the White Swan to Bittern Triangle. Walk the dog, cycle or jog; play ball games or putting on the open spaces or use kayaks and canoes on the river. Swans, geese and ducks abound on the river and help you chill out when watching from one of the numerous riverside benches. Parking... More
