“LOVELY PLACE TO WALK”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This park has been well laid out and is a delight for dog walkers families and cyclists alike. There is a beautiful pond in one area and pools with wild life too. It also runs along the canal with again more wild life and it will eventually go to the new Kelpies which are still under construction. Pity the café was not opened with the park . Still some work to do here but it is well worth a visit

“Work in progress.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Went to the opening day with my daughter who is 8yo. The place was utterly mobbed. Was good in that it gave you a taster of what it will look like when finished. However,much work needs to be done & a return visit next year is in order. Looked promising though.
