The attraction in regard to Peasholm Park can't fail to impress. Voted 6th top park around the whole of the UK by TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice awards, it's a feast of forest treats, home to tamed grey squirrels, geese, ducks and swans.
Of special interest to all ages are the Naval warfare skirmishes, that occur around three times a week in the summer as a re-enactment in miniature. Certainly, there are genuine men and women inside almost all of the ships guiding the models across the lake, as they are dive-bombed at the hand of electrically-powered model aeroplanes.
Launched via the boat deck are pedaloes, canoes along with brightly painted rowing boats, which are provided for hire, plus the island in the middle of the lake includes waterfalls and a pergola which are easy to get to on foot.
A floating bandstand in the centre of the lake is the venue for an organist who charms almost every afternoon, totally free of cost, based on weather. To amplify your entertainment is a putting green, 18-hole mini golf course, snack bar offering hot and cold food, along with a refreshment kiosk.
Much of the caretaker services throughout the park is performed by a team of volunteers known as the Friends of Peasholm Park, who function relentlessly to be sure that the beauty of the place is looked after, together with fund-raising ventures so as to provide additional resources in the years to come.
