As always a great place for an afternoon out with a great lakeside walk through the woods, a chance to feed the ducks and eat an ice cream!

Lovely place to visit for a couple of hours or so. Beautiful woodland walks- easily accessible for baby buggies etc- lovely lake with plenty of wildlife- swans, geese and ducks. Take a picnic! Great, safe place to walk your dog- highly recommended.

Nice place to go for a walk. Although being surrounded by development. Hopefully will remain an open space.

An excellent park with a long walk around a very large lake. Crazy golf available along with a small snack shop. Plenty of wildlife (ducks, geese, swans, etc). Pay to park though.

Coate Water reservoir has been a country park for many years. I visited once in about 1965 when living in Swindon. Not much has changed in the last 50 years, just a small visitor centre and an 18 hole pitch & putt course added. Squirrels,...More
