Fishing in the Lakes

The park has two main lakes which are certified fishing areas and attract a lot of local (and some not-so-local) Wildlife. The Lakes are the perfect place to pitch up with a rod or leisurely stroll around. 

 As the park was built to be a haven for the natural world there are many unusual trees  and some odd wildlife to be found around the many natural vistas and walks.
