Its a very small place. Small parking and the like. Has a decent field for kites, and pets. Playground for younger kids. Not much in terms of covered picnic areas. Great spot for fishing and canoeing.

Lovely park in northern Suffolk. Nice, short trails for kids along with usually busy play areas. Great park and performance venue in Suffolk.
