I've been visiting the boating lake since I was a small child. The park has always been well maintained. The lake is always changing and I love the fact I can still visit 30 years after my first time but now with my children.

Great place for walking and appreciating the wildlife. Swans, ducks Canadian Geese abundant. Riverside close by. Kingfishers have nested on/near the lake a couple of times. Splendid site.
