Used the free admission voucher in Primary Times. Great walk around. The lake, Welly wash, water play, sculptures and bird hides kept the children entertained as they walked around. Then the kids were entertained in the park too. Hope the maze will reopen again soon,...More

Thanks for the lovely review, we're glad you had a great visit and look forward to seeing you again.
The visitor centre is modern and impressive, the paths round the lakes are user-friendly and the bird hides are good too. It's suitable for all ages and one could spend hours here. And just down the road you can see seals!

Thanks for the lovely review. Many of our visitors spend many hours enjoying the reserve and the seals are always popular.

Scooters and bikes are not something we encourage on the paths around the reserve, but we are aware that they can really help families with young children get about and enjoy the site. Although for anything larger than a balance bike for very young children we would ask that you stick to the cycle track that takes you through reserve from Port Clarence to our front entrance.
