Very worthwhile visit. Clean, interesting and diverse range of sights and facilities. Only disappointing aspects was over-priced and unfriendly staff in the various cafes.

Lovely park that is extremely well looked after. Definitely worth a walk around, you can also take a boat out on the lake which is good fun. Food and drink facilities are very expensive here.
