Great layout and facilities

Fantastic place for a walk or stroll. Walks by the river are lovely, especially near the weir. Great for children, joggers and adults alike.

Historic beautiful setting, with a history of oppression and uprise. A nice place to take a walk and think.

Don't expect a long history lesson, the site of the Royal Powder Mills only has a couple of signposts with the history of the Pwder Mills, and that's pretty much it... You're going there for the lovely walk through the woods, summer or winter. It's a great stroll to make at any time.

This ruins of a 19th century gunpowder mill has almost nothing of interest to offer, other than the fact that it was once there.

Lovely walk to take, very informative and they recently put in a fairy garden in the park as well as the new playground so the kids love it. Fab tarmac path up the park side of it so kids can cycle and skate etc. A few too many dogs off the lead for my liking but that is everywhere really.

Great for a walk around. Some interesting old buildings.... Lovely to bring the dog as there is someplace they can swim. Some parts of the woods is very dark so watch if you have kids with you, but other than that great spot

First of all I have to say the park is lovely ,great place to bring kids or dogs on walks . Its a nice setting and is a good way to spend a day. The gunpowder mills are located in the park and are basically just ruined walls . Not much to see but worth a quick look . If... More
