Beautiful park especially in the summer. Lots of different entrances depending on which car park you come from. There are also some beautiful buildings to check out and some lovely walking trails. Small cafe also on grounds.

This is a lovely open space which can be enjoyed by children of all ages. There is a swing park with the likes of a zip wire and expanses of grass for ball games, dogs etc. Support this park and visit.
