We walked at the trail today. It is a fun and accessible family path that you can easily walk or cycle. Suitable for prams as well. There are playgrounds along the way and few cafes. Very recommended, next time we will return with our bicycles.

This place can get crowded during the summer holidays but it is beautiful year round. Walks and paths all around, with plenty of places to stop, sit and take it all in.

How wonderful to walk around the lake and enjoy the view from any part of the lake. Easy to walk around with friends, dogs or ride a bike. Grab a coffee on the way as well.

Spent a few hours here walking the paved trails. These trails would be great for biking as well as for those in wheelchairs or people pushing strollers. They keep it all very nice here. There are birds and other wildlife to see.

I use the park to walk virtually everyday. As a senior person I find it easy to walk being an even pathway and a number of like-minded people using this facility. It is well used by young and old and bike riders generally respect the...More
