Took a 4 year old gruffalo fan to this park. It’s a nice walk around the loch and you can see the amazing carved gruffalo creatures dotted around. She loved it! There is also a children’s play park where they can play for an hour.

Pretty urban loch with swans, ducks and some lovely sculptures of the Gruffalo and friends. Lots of people walk dogs there and there's a good play park adjacent. Paths can be a bit muddy.
