Nice walk, limited in the variety of paths but well worth a visit! Along the river is nice, brought back memories of when I was a boy and there was no such thing as Alyn Waters, just a place for adventures!

Went to pick sloes to use to make gin in time for Christmas. It was a lovely sunny day and we found lots of good sloes to pick. This is a great park we really enjoyed our day.
