  • A beautiful space for a leisurely stroll or in nice weather to sit down and relax. With a stream that seemingly has otters, an outdoor gym area and an orchard where you are encouraged to ‘pick your own’ it’s a fantastic place to escape the city!
  • Nice place to go for a walk when the weather is nice. It's popular with dog walkers. It's nice walking along the stream.
