We had heard good things about the park and the boathouse restaurant online and the info left for us in Pinetum Lodge. You can park your car around the edge of the park for quite a few hours for free which is convenient although I think it does get quite busy in the Summer time.
We had a good walk around the park which the dogs really enjoyed but then went to the little café for a cuppa (hot chocolate for me) and a cake which was lovely as the weather was a little chilly. Dogs are welcome in here which was good although it was quite a small place and some of it was closed off – I think due to it being out of season.
Such a lovely little park, perfect if you need a pitstop for your doggy friends. It was full of other people walking around with their pooches all around the lake, with the playpark being set apart from it too which means the walk around the lake is a little quieter.
