Lovely park, and very enjoyable to walk around. Dogs love it round there, people with dogs just need to learn to keep their dogs on a lead until after they have crossed the bridge. Once you get past the beginning, it’s nice.

A lovely park, great for walking with kids and dogs. This is a country park...no manicured lawns, tea shops etc. You go here if you love the country side and all it has to offer no matter what time of year.

Quite a place that you could fear to be in with family. You could have quick walk in but not more than that.

It’s a great place for dogs... loads of space to walk around in the woods. Although it’s a Dog walkers paradise there’s lots of different paths to take
