So glad you enjoyed the park and in particular our Festive Fairy Trail!
Lovely park, visited for a Parkrun. Very friendly people. Nice cafe with warm clean toilets. Children's trail with carvings in the trees looked fun. Herons nesting here too but didn't see any. Beautiful place to run around.More

Hi - thanks for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your visit!
You won't have seen any herons as they are only here during the Spring months Feb - June when they are very visible from our viewing deck nesting in the trees.
Wonderful variety of woodland and heartland tracks. Generally peaceful place to enjoy fresh air and give dogs a great off lead exercise.
There are interesting wood carvings throughout.
The lookout area provides great views of her on nests and information on local wildife.

This park is spectacular and both visitors and the operators have a collective responsibility to keep it in a condition we have all enjoyed in recent years. I was surprised and disappointed that during my visit earlier this morning that not only there was a...More
A beautiful piece of Bedfordshire woodland, maintained by The Greensand Trust. There's a good cafe which is dog and child friendly. There is an admission fee for cars, which does put some people off visiting.
Well worth a visit myself and my husband stumbled across this beautiful place online so decided to have a look and it took my breath away! We only paid £3 to park and the rest was totally free! It’s got something for everyone and if...More

Yes that's right - parking is £3 payable by cash on exit for now but we are in the process of installing a cashless payment system which we hope to have in operation by the school summer holidays which will make paying a lot... More
