Great park with lots of space for walking. I use it for my off road runs, it’s a great route for running and in fact hosts a park run there. Cafe is nice, lovely coffee and cakes with very friendly staff.

First to Review

The park here and trail is beautiful. They have a lovely cafe with great coffee. The biggest downfall is the people surrounding the elements. We walked past a couple of young people smoking weed within the park training their bull mastiff to bark viciously at our chihuahuas and witnessed another incident of someone kicking their puppy because it was barking. If you can catch it on a good day you’ll have a great walk.
