  • Well maintained park with plenty to do with the kids. Spacious car park, picnic areas and acres of land to cover on foot/bike/scooter etc. Fantastic ever-changing and very well maintained playground. 1 start knocked for the toilet facilities, though a little can be done when utter pigs visit them. Overall, a highly recommended place for a relaxing Sunday.
  • Perfect place for a stroll by the lake. Beautifully laid out and an oasis of green in the town. There is a pleasant cafe, a large play area, boating and at weekends and holidays a miniature railway. Great for nature lovers and dog walkers and many events throughout the year from rock concerts to fairs.
