We used to visit regularly, for a late breakfast or for lunch. Lovely food, served with a smile. It's gone really downhill, and is now a place to avoid. What a pity!

Love this park so much! We have 3 children and 2 labs! They all love the park. I really like the fact that they allow dogs off lead, so they get a lot of enjoyment too. :)

My partner and I often walk around Harrold Country Park, it's quite peaceful with lovely views of the lake and benches dotted around every now and then. We would take the dog (on the lead) but a lot of people don't adhere to the "Dogs...More

I've not seen any Kingfishers there but I have seen one at Mill Meadow in Bedford - that's the bit of the Great Ouse behind Cardington Road east of The Park Hotel.

I have seen powered scooters regularly in the park. The paths around the lake are not laid to cement, but paths are there. There may be a bit of vibration . It i a lovely place to go .
