Pleasant enough park. Could do with more play area or themed areas for young children. Wouldn't mind the hefty parking charge if there was a splash park. There's better maintained parks in Hertfordshire.

Impressed with the park but what a hassle at the parking ticket machine. Needs a university degree to understand!! If you don't have a phone, you've got a problem! Frustrating to say the least!!
