Very peaceful for a stroll and somewhere for your dog to stretch there legs, only downside are the people who can’t be bothered to clean up after their dogs, as usual they will be the ones who complain the most when dogs are banned!

Wow, what an oasis... literally. Wonderful for picnics and paddling, two legs and four! The water is flowing, via a shallow wier, so is clean and lovely. This hot summer and beyond it has been a godsend and a perfect place for family fun.
