Such a good thing to have so local, not only does it host parkrun but it actively encourages children to exercise, which is a massive achievement. The course is in perfect working order and is great to cycle or run around

Just love this place. Found the staff really helpful and very supportive to the most nervous cyclist. Nice to have the coffee facilities there would be great to have toilets on site and not have to use the leisure centre! Still that's a minor gripe!
