There are also some tennis courts that can be booked and a five-a-side soccer pitch.
The grassy areas are full on sunny days with families and groups of friends having picnics or individuals soaking up the sun with a good book for company.
The park also has an animal corner: an enclosure of elegant deer, a small group of goats and a small avery.
There's also a crown green bowling club at the park.
At the centre of the park is a large building that was once a private home (well, more of a mansion). At various points this has contained a cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, but the cafe is currently closed.
