“Trent Country Park”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Love this country park as have been walking there for many years with my dogs. Acres and acres of wonderful walks. There is a pets corner with various animals and birds for the children to visit. Go Ape for the more adventurous. Middlesex University is set in the middle of the park with the Sassoon building amongst the site. In Springtime the area around the University site is a mass of yellow as thousands of daffodils bloom. There is usually a cafe in the car park near the Cockfosters entrance, however, this is presently out of action and a temporary facility for coffees, ice creams etc is on site.

“A little piece of the country”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

When you're in the middle of Trent Park you could be in the middle of the countryside. It's gorgeous, feels very isolated and it's open very long hours in summer. Great for dog walkers and runners. Lots of free parking. It can get very crowded up the main entrance, but there's another entrance off Hadley Road where fewer people go and also has plenty of parking.

“Trent Country Park”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Trent Country Park is great for anyone who wants to have a ramble in the country - without cows (which I'm scared of) and the risk of getting lost. I went on a hot sunny day and it was bliss being able to do a long walk in the shade while looking at a glorious view across hay meadows to ancient woodland. Only a short walk from Cockfosters Tube station.

“Exercise, relax, take your pick”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Trent Park is a 400+ acre country park with loads of space to walk, ride, run, play golf, fish (I think) or just relax and have a picnic by the lakes. There is a café, plenty of parking and a great Go Ape course (near the parking area) which is Enfield's most popular attraction. This is our local country park and we often go there for a good walk or for the occasional events that are held there. Lots of open space, woodlands, lakes, etc. and loads of space for dogs to run around or kids to play. There is also a special trail for the blind or partially sighted. Nice place to chill out or to get active.

“Fabulous outdoor adventure”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Whether you've got half an hour to walk your dog or want to take the kids out to let off steam, Trent Park is the place for you. Dog walkers, runners (there's a Trent park running club), families, in fact everyone comes here for their fix of countryside. Clock fosters tube station (Northern line) is a short walk and plenty of free parking too.

With woodland walks, mountain bike trails, a flat boulevard walk (great for pushchairs and wheelchairs) and Go Ape high ropes there is something for everyone. I think there's been many a child in the Enfield and surrounding area which has learnt to ride their bike or scooter on the flat boulevard. Their reward would be a tour of the animal sanctuary and a hot chocolate at the cute little cafe.

The main cafe on our visit was closed but seemed to be serviced in its place by a couple of food vans selling burgers, refreshments and ice cream. A bit disappointing as the cafe was lovely. Let's just hope it's a blip and they're refurbishing it. Nevertheless it was still busy.

There's a fairly new children's adventure playground next to the car and seating area. Great for young children; baby swings, assault course, slide etc.

It's a lovely place and you should definitely visit here.
