Visitors to this popular free attraction, with its open rolling landscape, enjoy walking, picnicking, wildlife and bird watching. Visit the bird hides on the lake to view wildfowl such as the heron as well as dragonflies and amphibians and look out for osprey, widgeon and yellow wagtail. The two-mile path around the lake is both wheelchair and pushchair friendly and the park is also a starting point to the network of footpaths and trails to explore the wider countryside - enjoy a woodland walk or follow the Barnsley Canal towpath.
