A great place for dogs and walkers. Lots of off lead opportunities but watch out for livestock in the fields and cyclists on the cycle track that runs through the park.
Start at the Barn visitors centre and walk through the Pinetum to the sundial. Follow a fenced path to the river and spend a while in the open space that seems to act as a doggy meeting place for dogs of all ages and sizes. Once your dog has run themselves ragged walk up the steps to the lake and onwards to a gate leading to fields and green wood. Follow the path through Green Wood and eventually back accross the field to Gravel Hole Woods. Walk back along the river (swimming and paddling opportunities - beware if you don't want a wet dog!) and retrace your steps to the car park.
Very close to the M6 and ideal for a stop-off if you're travelling.
