Had such a nice walk around Sutton Park, first time visiting and it was great. The park is huge with lots of different places to walk and there is a well maintained main path. There is a large lake that used to be a lido that is very Impressive and worthy of a look. There's also a donkey sanctuary that's great too. (this is shut until lockdown is over in May/june 2021) There is a really nice cafe in the park called the blackroot bistro. There's also a public restroom located in the same place. Car parking is both free and a free-for-all where we stopped. It's gravel with no marked spaces so people park in all sorts of ways. There are several other car parks located on the site. All in all I'd highly recommend it for the mixture of different sights and landscapes on offer.

Beautiful place for a walk, with lots of different paths through the woodland and down to the various lakes. Places open for a coffee if required along with some ice cream vans as well. Very easy to escape from the crowds once you walk away from the main roads/tracks. Lots of beautiful trees, and wonderful to enjoy some peace and listen to the bird song. Recommend.

Simply love the park. It has so many things to offer. Cycling, kids playing areas, walking tracks, lakes, donkey's conservatory etc. Very good for picnics but no permission for BBQ
