I walk around the lake in summer while my son swims at the uni pool. Well kept park with plenty of wildlife on show. There is a coffe shop that's opened now, not tried it yet but will do soon...

Took in a walk around the park whilst staying in the nearby Orchard hotel. Nicely laid out and spotted a fair degree of wildlife. Very enjoyable.
