Toilets

You’ll find public toilets at the top of the car park and at the Lakeside Café.  Both include disabled and baby changing facilities.

Cafe

Take a short walk around the lake from the car park to the Lakeside Café for hot and cold meals, tea, coffee, cakes, snacks and of course ice cream! With indoor and outdoor seating available this is a great place to enjoy a meal in beautiful surroundings. Alternatively you can grab a coffee and hot and cold snacks at the refreshment kiosk at the top of the car park adjacent to Go Ape. The kiosk and Café are both run by San Remo Catering.

Wheelchair Access

Free parking and designated spaces are available for blue badge holders in the car park. There is a tarmac path around the lake with seating at regular intervals and the café is accessible for wheelchairs.

Dog Walking

Well behaved dogs and their humans are welcome in all of our parks; we do ask that dogs are kept under close control and that waste is picked up and disposed of considerately. Clear signage is displayed throughout all the parks regarding dogs-on-leads areas and dog free areas.
