The network of hard-surfaced paths ensures easy walking, cycling and pushing in all weather conditions.

Dogs are welcome and can be exercised off the lead*, provided they are kept under close control. The 'dog dip' area of the lake provides a dedicated space for dogs to enjoy a paddle. Owners are reminded to clean up after their dogs (there are 12 bins!).

*NB: There may be seasonal restrictions to protect ground-nesting birds.
