This was my first visit and I was pleasantly surprised. Lovely place for a walk, all paved and flat so not too strenuous. Parking was easy and plentiful. Nice views all the way round with the added excitement of seeing the planes come in to land. Plenty of places to sit if you wanted to and picnic area too.

There's a flat tarmac path that circumnavigates the tarn that's obviously great for those who have issues walking up/down gradients and for those using or assisting wheelchairs/pushchairs/prams.

Called in on a Sunday and were pleasantly surprised at the size of the Tarn. Adults and kids sailing toy boats, feeding the ducks and a very good place for a stroll. All it needs is a small cafe or snack bar.

This place isn't huge but it's big enough to be a bit of a surprise as you step in off the main road. It's a regular with locals - dog walking and taking children to feed the ducks and if you like planes you have the bonus of seeing them take off and land very close up as it's right... More

Great Yorkshire walk. Lots of free parking when we went. There wasn't any toilets available. Has a little sailing club if you are interested. No litter very well kept, great dog walking spot too.
