Having two fair haired children means that it can be hard sometimes to shelter them from the sun. We visited Black Park on a very hot day but it was perfect due to all the trees providing the necessary shade. The lake is so picturesque that it makes focusing on other things quite hard. There are ducks to feed, small remote controlled boats and the sun shimmering on the water. Our son loved watching the boats in the crystal clear water.
There is a large café the other side of the lake from the car park which is reasonably priced and although we didn’t eat there the food looked delicious. The toilets were immaculately clean which is great for a park. Next to the café area there are many shaded and un-shaded areas to sit and have a picnic if like us your children find picnics so exciting.
The children’s park is fantastic, again very shaded in most areas and there is a huge choice for the children to go on. There is a wooden train which both of our two loved, our son pretending to be the driver and saying we were off to the sea side.
There are various different slides, swings and a wooden play house which we spent a lot of time playing on. So many different things, see saws, a wooden castle and various rockers. You could easily spend a day at Black Park and parking is cheap there too. A great family fun day out.
