The nature reserve itself is a wood which has several well trodden paths. It is not suitable for buggies or accessible friendly. There is a small stream which runs through the wood and is great for kids to splash around in or dogs to cool off in. The reserve is just to the right of the rugby club and playground. You can do a full loop of the woods in about 30 minutes.
The playground is at the top of the park and offers something for all ages. There are numerous climbing frames and swings and several benches.
