About this walk
Many different ways of walking through this large park. There are many open park spaces for throwing balls, forest walks for lots of sniffs, and the sea for a bit of a swim. In the summer we start with a stroll along the shore and then walk up into the woods, do a few loops and come back through the open park next to the church. In the winter we go straight in to the woods, walk north around the bbq & picnic areas. You can park your car in the park for £2. We park on the street before the park, you should find spaces. Finally, be careful of the roads in the park; they're not busy but have sharp bends and cars seem to appear from out of nowhere.

    Nice walk, lots to do and great for dogs that like a dip in the sea! Can get very busy in the summer which can be a problem if your dog is off the lead!

    This is a good place to go and play! We took a ball and had great fun throwing it all over the large grassy fields. We went in January and again in February 2013 and it was very quiet but I imagine in the summer it would be choc-a-bloc with people and kids. Be VERY wary of letting your dog off the lead here unless you have very good recall/stop&stay; commands as the roads in the park are dangerous for odd-leaders, especially if your dog is small like mine (drivers just don't see them). You can stick to the middle of the grassy areas and play games off-lead but I was clipping and unclipping the lead all day. Also, be careful when approaching the river front. The water looks quite strong & dangerous (perhaps we were there at high tide) and the sea-wall could be easily hurtled-off by water loving dogs with very few places to climb back up. Much of the front is fenced off but there are areas where you can access and it's a bit scary.
