The model boating lake is one of the main attractions, it’s also where local enthusiasts take to the water with their models, providing entertainment for all who see them and pause to watch.

There is also a play area divided into two parts, one featuring a traditional play area and another that’s set aside as a more natural area. The hill itself is a lovely nature reserve steeped in history of the old sandstone quarry dating back to 1734, at the top of the hill views of the welsh mountains can be seen. The area is popular with dog walkers and families a like, just over the hill is the bowling green along with tennis courts and the bandstand.

“Really busy when the weather in nice but worth the wait as the service is efficient, the staff are friendly and their prices are reasonable. Worth a visit if you’re in the park or in the area.”
