This is a great place to go for a walk and picnic if you are in the area. There are plenty of scenic areas and great trees and lakeside areas. Many activities too. Great family day out.

Nice meeting place for a stroll and coffee . Row on the lake and a picnic . Beware of some of the geese and swans though as they are far from shy . I have seen them attack quite a few adults and children .
