For the life of me, I can never figure out why finding the opening times online is near impossible for places like this. It's a little thing that makes a ddifference and doesn't cost. Great place though!

Park area is covered in dog faeces as no bins provided. My son's shoes were destroyed and all after paying 5 euro entrance fee. Do not recommend.

Nice spot for a walk, bring a picnic. No problem paying the €5 for the car park, bring coins. I suppose it goes towards the upkeep. The playground was very busy and it's too small for the potential of the place
