My dogs love it here. You can go on different walks each time. It costs £5.00 to get through the main entrance.

Cycled here along the Transpennine Trail. Not too commercialised. Good picnic area and small visitor area. Lots of water based activities available. Sculpture trail was disappointing (lack of sculptures!) but the walks around the lakes were nice.

Loads of activity for the younger members of the family with the train ride & park. Older kids can have a go at the water sports. Near the cafe area there is a craft centre if kids would like to be creavite. A lovely walk around the 2 lakes or even bikes round. The only downside is my dog loves... More

Great Park for walking or water sports. We had a lovely walk round the lake then stopped at the nice bar for a beer. There is loads to do for kids and some nice places to have a snack.

Green route round lake was easy enough to find but walkers obviously Don,t like sharing the paths with people on bikes! Was totally unable to locate any signs for the blue route -... More

I hadn't been here for years because there was duck's and water and not much else. I decided to take a friend there because we are both now into photography. The ducks and the water is still there, but the rest of the park has improved beyond belief, for those if you who do watersports you can choose between skiing,... More

We have not been here many times even though it is virtually on our doorstep. I nice easy circular route suitable for pushing around a pram. There are some smooth pathways but this does not quite extend to the whole the circular route. Well worth a trip. The entrance fee is £5
