This park has an enormous potential but unfortunately it has not received any investments from the local authorities in the last 10 years

This is a very extensive park with some formal areas, for instance the Rose Garden and the Secret Garden, together with plenty of space to explore - including the site of the old motte and bailey castle. Good to see the cafe open for take away.

Travelled approx 10 miles to visit the park. Nice enough park to walk round and nice aviary and lakeside walk. Unfortunately had to leave because of lack of toilet facilities. The only toilets were in the cafe and were closed to the public but open for take away food at over inflated prices (£4.50 for a toastie) couldn't afford anything else. I'm sure cafes etc use covid as an excuse to close toilets and save them the bother of cleaning them etc. I believe if the cafe is open the toilets should be open otherwise shut the cafe as well. My local park at Batley has a better value nicer cafe with excellent toilet facilities and is only take away. It's simply a cop out. Will be going back to Batley in future.

We enjoyed walking round the park, and the lake with so many geese and birds was a delight, also the aviary was really nice. The only downside was there were no public toilets. You can go to the cafe by the entrance, and can use the toilet there, if you purchase food. They only take cash, which is good to know before you visit
