Ongoing work by the volunteers keep this area a great location for a dog walk. A few more dog bins may encourage owners to clean up. Great to go on a regular basis to see the seasons changing in the trees and flowers.

Great place for a walk, bike ride, horse ride alone or with family, friends. Plenty of open spaces for games, picnic or fishing. You can also take a stroll through Netherton Tunnel.
