This park is absolutely amazing! Great picnic areas, a fab playground, including a wonderful water feature for warm and sunny days and so much equipment to keep the children entertained for hours.

The park is free with plenty of parking. It has an expansive grass land with hillocks, water play areas, climbing castle, big grassy hill with a track to the top, swings, and so many things to do. A coffee shop, toilets etc. Wonderful.
