“Brilliant kids park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Maybe the best kids park ever! Loads of swings, slides and play equipment to climb on. Most of it shaped as dinosaurs. rockets etc rather than your standard fare. Flying fox for the older kids, water play area, train rides, pirate ship, All by the river with plenty of space to run around or have a picnic. Kiddie heaven

“Fun for children and adults of all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

When the weather is nice this is the place to be with young kids. There are story themed attractions like humpty dumpty and old mother hubbard. Bring swim gear or a change of clothes as the water fun area is hard to resist.,There are plenty of swings slides and things to climb. There is an area suitable for rollersports.
There is a no pet, smoking, drinking policy but there were still a number of parents smoking there. There are picnic facilities but not a lot of food or drink options in the park itself.
There is also a small train ride though the hours are limited from memory 1-3pm. This runs around a ship themed play area.
