“Don't forget the bread”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Nice park with a little playground, good walks and running trails. Kids love going there to look at the deer, try to catch the ducks and crawl in between the trees. Take a little old bread to feed the deer, always a great attraction.

“Nice place for fresh air and exercise”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is a really great place. Lovely peaceful forest walks, a deer enclosure where you can get really close to some nice deer. ALong by the lake is a nice place to relax in the sunshine and there are some picnic areas and a small playground as well.
Covers a huge area so also a great place to tire out kids or just enjoy a romantic stroll.

Could do with better signage to it from the main roadand also the road to it is narrow and can be dangerous to people who dont know it too well. They have started recently to charge into it as well which means you have to be going for at least a few hours to make it worth your while.

“Nice walk and that's it”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

There is a small playground but is for the bigger children. Nice seeing the animals so close but i don't think it should cost 5 €.
The area is really nice. As tourist we found it a bit difficult to find (not many signs). There is toilets.
