Dogs are allowed to visit the park with their owners, but they must be kept on a lead at all times and owners should be prepared to remove any doggy doos. PLEASE BE AWARE – poison bait for rabbits is quite often laid around the park. It is not laid by the tracks but could be nearby. This is a very good reason to have your dog on a lead. Rabbit poison can be fatal to dogs.
The circular track takes about 45 minutes to walk, but if you like exploring you could spend twice as long and still not see it all. We recommend stout footwear be worn. Only the lower grass lawns are wheelchair accessible at the present time.
Funding comes from donations collected by our donation boxes at the gate, Society membership, donations from members and others, and by applying for grants from local government and charitable funding organisations.
