We like coming back here as we can let our dog off her lead and make the circular walk around the reservoir. There are loads of seats to sit down on and take in the views

We stopped here on route to our holiday cottage and would have liked to have spent longer. Good café, and nice spot for a picnic. There are walks available but we did not have time to do them.

We were visiting friends in Wellingborough and decided to have a walk around the park. It is a lovely park, rugged but not too rugged. Mostly on level, and popular with dog walkers and fishermen. Good car parking and facilities. If I had a criticism...More

We walk our dog around the reservoir fairly regularly. Nice cafe for refreshment afterwards. The only qualm is the parking which is a set fee for 24 hours or something. Would be better if you could pay for just an hour at a time.
