    Lovely park and a nice lunch
    We visited as an extended family group of 8 aged between 7 and 55 for a stroll around and then lunch in the cafe. Kids loved the big park there and was lovely to see wildlife including a family of 7 cygnets. Lunch was £40 for a family of 4 including drinks but without pudding. My pitta wrap was delicious and everyone else enjoyed theirs too. Would be nice if you were able to get a cup or glass of tap water when eating in the cafe rather than being sent to the dog tap with a paper cone but other than that we would definitely visit again.

    Nice park
    Lovely country park, there is ample parking and we paid £3 for all day winter rates. There is a visitor center with free maps and plenty of marked walks showing distance and difficulty. Bike hire and a children's playground and a cafe with friendly staff. There are 2 large pools with bird hides. Worth a visit

    Regular visitors and love it
    A really lovely place. Well maintained by friendly staff. Car parking good. Walks are circular which is handy. Nice playgrounds. A lovely walk up to the woods. Toddler Trundle sessions are great too. Only quibble is the cafe which is ok but a bit over priced.

A real shame. We used to love visiting Ryton Pools. Especially as my son is only 15 months it was ideal for a stroll and a go on the swings.
Recently used the cafe for the first time. Will not be returning. It was a busy Sunday, My husband ordered a hot baguette which was priced quite heavily however I don’t mind paying for quality. Female member of staff came out with my food, couldn’t find us repeatedly shook her head, screwed her face up and just passed us the baguette and walked off. Not a single word was said. The baguette was okay, the cake slice we ordered was lovely. I’m not here to give a one sided review. But it costs absolutely nothing to make your customers feel valued not a burden! Will not be returning after our experience. Otherwise a lovely country park with lots of amenities for the little ones! Two adventure parks and ducks too!

First visit, and a nice surprise having not looked at the location in much detail. We'd picked it as an outdoor meet up point. Very good walking spot. Very nice views across the lake from the woodland paths.
There is a lack of signposts as to the pathways and where they take you once you walk round. I think i only spotted one sign.
The cafe was ok, but very small cups ( i like my tea in quantity), and the toasted sandwiches were made with the cheap cheese and came with little salad. However the wedges looked great, wish i had chosen those. Very disappointed that the staff at the cafe were not wearing masks.

This is an excellent place to walk, with or without a dog. Good quality paths which are wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
There is a Visitor Centre, where the staff are informative, friendly and helpful.
There is also a cafe on site for hot and cold drinks, snacks or main meals. The breakfasts are very good.
I was surprised to see the comments, dated October 2021, as my wife and I have been going there for many years, and we find Dave and Pat, very friendly.
I believe that particular review was over critical for whatever reason.
Try the place for yourself and make your own judgement.

We enjoyed Ryton Pools for a few hours out for some fresh air on a warm day. We stopped for ice cream (nice although expensive) and one of the younger (10) kids enjoyed the bigger play park.

The carpark was £3 for under 2 hours and £4 for a longer stay. Accepts contactless/card payments.

The play areas were all lovely and clean and the walks were lovely for couples, younger family's and for trying to encourage tweens to appreciate fresh air. We saws swans, ducks and geese so with the right food you could feed.

We also saw a very friendly donkey from an adjacent farm land. He absolutely made my trip.

We only had a couple of hours out to encourage some exercise but if we had taken a picnic or football we could have stayed longer as there was lots of spots to relax, eat and play games.

I would reccomend.

We have a pass for Ryton Pools and as always, the park is clean, well cared for and a beautiful place to walk round. We have only recently felt able to venture out after a long period of shielding. Unfortunately our last few visits have been spoilt by very disrespectful people. We have encountered several visitors who have been walking up to 4 abreast across the footpaths and no intention of moving over or going single file in order to maintain social distancing. We have had to clamber up banks to try and keep a distance from them. Also nearly got run over by a youth going hell for leather on a go kart. We would ask these people to please be considerate to others.

There are plenty of routes through the park however it remains easy to navigate. We did not see many variations in the plant life - with minimal wildflowers, instead mostly shrubbery and weeds.

I would recommend fully for a decent walk, however, there is little to see.

We visited after the Covid-19 lockdown had been lifted, but before the full amenities at the park had been reopened.

This was our first visit post-covid, car park is now card only, plenty of spaces and loads of space to walk the paths/trails. Felt very safe and the cafe now has limited seating and a safe queuing system. Staff were excellent.

We took our bikes here on our tow bar bike rack on a sunny weekend in September. We’d never been here before and were a bit worried about parking at first as the first car park was full and then the next parking error was too narrow to accommodate our tow bar bike rack. But we carried on driving and there was lots more parking further on and lots of room for our bike rack fortunately. The parking is pay and display and you pay by card. There were lots of shared-use paths for us to explore on our bikes although some of our explorations led to park exits without us realising this. Our boys aged 6 and 8 enjoyed the playground which had lots of equipment for them to play on and there was a nice friendly ice cream van man. There was an area with lots of pirate paraphernalia we cycled through, and a miniature railway although that wasn’t open because of covid.
