Visited on a lovely sunny afternoon.
Noises of children from children's play area led us there.

Very good range of equipment and superb water feature. A place of much enjoyment for families.

Toilets are located near.
Play area is fenced with notices to exclude dogs and any smoking. This was adhered to.

There is no notice about no cycling in play area- was concerned by two teenagers riding through the area.

Manu families feed the ducks and have fed then over the years. Now there are Canada geese (20) which can be frightening to little children. Care needed- but it is a lovely park area.

Nice park but suffers as a teenage hangout. The tennis courts used to be good until they became a multi purpose area now you have kids trying to play football over tennis nets so its useless for anything!
