Forgot to rate and would only let me do 5 stars. Not enough.
12 mile cycle with my 7yr old daughter today for charity. Fantastic park, clean, safe of road track to suit all ages with plenty of other activities to keep the other kids amused. Even the big kids got to have fun on the outdoor gym equipment. First time in this park and have to say I hope it's not my last. Loved it.
Coming to the park on Sunday 27th April as my 7yr old daughter wants to do a 12 mile cycle for Macmillan cancer and this is a safe place to do it. 10 laps, done safe.
