This is great for families with lots of playground equipment. For those who like exercise there is a good level path for a brisk walk round the beautiful lake.

There are lots of people when it's busy with dogs. So i would say to keep ur dog on lead when you are the main paths. There is a meadow walk that does not look like many use u might be able to let ur dog off there.
