Promenade Park

Avenues of mature trees and recreation areas lead down to the ornamental lake complete with fountains and resident swans and other birds and wildlife. Smaller children will love the sand pit which is located at one end of the lake. The pit is ajacent to one of the many refreshment kiosks in the park so you can relax with a cup of tea and watch the kids enjoying themselves. There is also an oyster and seafood bar which is open weekends and bank holidays.

At the opposite end of the lake you will find more refreshment kiosks and the main conveniences. Beyond those is:
