The sandpit is suitable for younger visitors, with a large climbing frame boasting several slides and seating around the circumference. The sandpit also has 2 metal diggers for our little builders and lots of natural stepping stones and objects to climb on.
Behind the sandpit you will find the steps to the large metal tunnel slide that brings you out to a woodchip area. Here you will find more large natural stepping stones and things to climb on, a basket swing and more seating.
On the grass there is a large rope climbing tower and several bouncy characters to enjoy.
Around the park there are 3 walking or cycling trails. The blue trail has animal plaques that you can do rubbings of, you can collect them as you complete the trail.
