Not worth the trip. The park is nice but the deers are disturbingly unnatural with their continuous (and fully understandable) quest for food. Their behaviour, the artificial "bowing" appear so unnatural that, if you love animals in their natural environment, you are annoyed and just...More

On a warm, Wednesday it was dry and dusty and overpopulated with visitors and deer. Tens of thousands of visitors, including hundreds of school groups made wandering around the gravel paths crowded and dusty. The parklands were not particularly beautiful and looked overgrazed by the...More
