A great urban park, has several places for food and drink. Is dog friendly with lots of routes for cycling and running. Be careful of wildlife such as cows and rabbits they are everywhere. If you are not sure where to start, try the donkey sanctuary or the visitor centre.

Sutton Park I grew up exploring this park, as a youth many happy hours were spent walking and cycling the parks many trails. Hours of fun were had fishing it's diverse lakes. Today the park has changed very little from those childhood days, the paths a little more worn and the tree's a little taller. It's still a beautiful slice of tranquility in a urban metropolis. There's a small band of volunteers these days that spend a lot of there free time trying to maintain this haven and they're doing a splendid job. This park is well worth a visit, and if we all work together, will still be available for future generations to explore.
