Have visited on a number of occasions and enjoyed it. Not going again- grandchildren petrified by the numerous vicious geese that surrounded them when we were trying to feed ducks.

Good for walks and local wildlife , play areas for the grandkids and some of the nesting birds have amazing colour especially the mandarin ducks if you're lucky enough to see one they are beautiful. Have also cycled around as the paths are wide enough.

Beautiful nature, peaceful surroundings and amazing air quality, perfect day out for pregnant women, children, families with pets and elderly people. Very therapeutic for anyone seeking weekend relaxation after a stressful week. Great picnic spot in the summer.

Not seen any signs saying "you can't" so guess it's ok as long as you tidy up and don't damage the grass or trees
