Plan a day out

Walker Road

There are steps and steep sections of path in the park which can make it difficult for wheelchair access.

There are public car parks at Pottery Bank and Belmont Street

As you walk along the riverside path you can often spot a range of wildlife on the river including wading birds and grey seals. 

The dense woodland is great for wildlife spotting – and is a rich habitat for a variety of birds. If you’re really quiet you might spot a fox or a rabbit or two!

There aren't any toilets within the park
