Beautiful park, quiet and lots of trails. It never seems to be all that crowded through the week, but I cannot comment about week-ends. Bordered by the Blakleey river, there are some good access points to casta lure!

We had a good walk around the park and battlefield information boards. There is a boat tour some days. But wasn't running the day we visited. Very quiet not many people about but was a storm brewing up so that could have been a factor.

We love going to Blakeley Park! We always find somewhere new to read and learn as well as enjoy the beautiful scenery. They take great care of the Park and the facilities on their property. It's such a neat place to go explore!
