Description: 196 acres of lush parkland featuring a boating lake, numerous cafes, a mini theme park (open from spring till summer)and an Ice skating rink.Large expanses of woodland and forested areas feature rivers,fishing lakes,gorges,sandy heaths and grassland.Childrens play area is also included.
This place is one of Londons most exciting, yet undiscovered jems, largely because it is hidden away from the bustle of the town centre right next door.
The place encompasses some of the most spectacular scenery found anywhere in the capital. Most people who do visit the place only get to see the main attractions laid out on its doorstep such as the beautiful boating lake the small theme park.
However, there is much more to the place than this and beyond the man-made attractions, threre is a special world waiting to be discovered. My own personal favourite has to be the nature park which features deer,donkeys,rabbitts, foxes
hedgehogs and squirrels, as well as a myriad of birdlife ranging from diffrent
Wildfowl to Herons and even the beautiful Kingfisher. You're likely to find frogs and newts near the rivers and even catch a glimpse of the common lizard.
