A nice big space to have a walk around. The play area looked clean and no litter. The public toilets were open. The stream was full and the pond had plenty of ducks to feed

Nice little park, plenty of shade, some of the equipment on the play park is a bit tricky for under 5's, toilet facilities are poor
