We had a great day out looking at the wildlife and animal wood sculptures. The play area had the usual bits including some accessible equipment. Parking was £1.

Brilliant 3 hours spent with these fantastic birds of prey. Very informative and great to get involved. The young lady Alice and her father were really lovely people and know their stuff.
