Our fish pond is fully stocked with Sun Fish and Bass.  It’s a gentle ‘catch and release’ experience so we ask that you are careful when removing the barbless hook and that you release the fish back into the pond at the water’s edge ensuring that he swims away successfully.

The ‘Kool Stop’ is located by the splash pad and offers delicious frozen treats which are a favourite on a hot summer day.
