We had a lovely family day out at this Park. Our kids are still babies so couldnt do everything on offer but enjoyed the walks around the Park and then the play area. If you have slightly older kids the water sports and zip lining look class.

This is just such a relaxing place to stroll around. The fairy village is so adorable and the smaller aged assault course is such a great idea! The playground at the entrance has been re-varnished and everything is well cared for. love this place and recommend.

I visited to try out the new octagon and zip line experience and it was brilliant. I had previously tried the tree top walk on a number of occasions (with both family and as part of a team building exercise) - this was a new challenge thats for sure. It's a challenge but also great fun and the zip line... More

This is the first time that I had been to Discovery Park. I went with my good lady, daughter and two grandchildren of 4 and 7 months. To walk around the park and the lake over a leisurely 2 hours is great and for kids too. We ended the visit with a fine lunch of Ciabatta BLT's and Ham &... More

This park is simply wonderful, I am a regular walker and having seen the transformation and trojan work the park has done it is amazing! Plenty of wonderful walking routes, a enchanting elf village for the kids with a woodland adventure area for the little ones. Boats and pedlos out on the lake..you could even try a spot of fishing.... More
