We did view some of the deer, from a distance, and enjoyed the walled garden at the cafe location. Was not able to try a lunch/sandwich from the garden ingredients, because there were 9 tour group busses there at the same time and the cafe...More

The park is huge, with lots of green and flowers. It's very quiet and peacefull. Excellent for a family picknick, reading a book, or just think. A must visit.

Yes! Team sports including soccer and football are played in the area referred to as 15 acres. There are also areas throughout the park that would also work for that! Great park! You will enjoy it!
