  1. Both playgrounds have been completely replaced this summer (2019). Still good, but not as amazing as they were we feel. The Nature Centre has been revamped with a lovely seating area over the water.

  2. A wonderful place to visit with a family. Walk around the lake, buy some food from the shop and feed the numerous birdlife on the water, then have a play in either of the parks. The large park for older children is well equipped with two large slides, a zip wire and a fabulous wooden assault course. For tiny ones, the little park has baby swings, two slides and climbing equipment. The cafe sells lovely homemade cakes for when energy levels need restocking! A little gem of a place. We love it.
