Had a really nice cycle with the family - wife, 6 & 3yr old. Nice views, flat, good paths for cycling and just the right size to get around and visit the excellent play area. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This is a lovely Park in an otherwise built up area. Great place for a pleasant walk, with play area for children, crazy golf, paddling pool, angling, cafe and even a miniature railway open at certain times. It is also a nature reserve.

The path takes you around the perimeter of the lake and takes about 45 minutes on a stroll. Great for dog walking (on a leash). Very peaceful and a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Swindon town. There is a little railway for...More
