As well as introducing parking charges, they've also changed their rules relating to dogs. Between April and September, dogs need to be on leads in the busiest areas of the park. I went last week and lots of owners were making the most of being able to let their dogs run free.
Although the Park is very busy in the summer, the parking areas are extended accordingly, so there is always somewhere to park. Our usual walk is around the lake and across the grass in front of the house. As it's such a large area, even if the car park is busy, you can walk freely without having to weave between other walkers.
It's a great spot for a dog walk though and good to visit throughout the year, it looks good whatever the season.
|Can I go now, please?|
|I remember the days when Barney was shorter than the grass|
|Barney couldn't have been less interested in the swans and cygnets|
|Look at them though!|
|Autumn has arrived|
