Recently updated with the play areas all together. It meant you can go in and play or walk around to avoid it. My daughter loved the swings. There were large fish in the very shallow boating pond which didn't look to pleased to be there. The craft village looked amazing and we went to paint a pot. The Lilac Joinery also gave my daughter ideas of what she wanted for Christmas. Can't wait to go again.

This is a lovely park. The cafe is awesome and the lake is lovely. Car park is quite large too. Buy some bird food from the cafe to feed the ducks, swans and coots. There's a good play area for kids and the skate park too.
