Been a regular visitor to this lake for donkeys years. Now we visit with our grandkids. Very nice and the kids love it. Dont feed the ducks bread though as its not good for them or the other wading birds.

Great little park to go and walk around, see the local bird wild life on the lake and there is a coffe shop to have a drink & snack. There is also a car park close by so good easy access for family’s with pushchairs.

We went for a walk around the lake, it's always a good place to go to let your kids burn some steam. They love looking for wildlife, especially the ducks and we can spend quite a few hours there, enjoying our surroundings.

The rowing boats on the main lake would need a teenager or adult to row but you see children all ages in them. On the small pond area the boats operate with pedals which turn the rudder, I think only 3 can fit in these. I... More
