Wellington Country Park (Riseley)
Advantages: Big car park
Disadvantages: Price and not informing people of whats closed.
Me and my girlfriend visited this park today and came out feeling like we had been robbed. We turned up, and paid our 6.75 each which I think is over priced. After paying they tell us that the animal farm is closed, and so is the Deer park, two of the things we came to see, why they do not advertise this before you pay I do not know, you would think this would be the moral thing to do, but they get your money then tell you. The girl at the reception seemed very unenthusiast6ic and as if she did not want to be there, and said "sorry not much is open but you could go on the train ride", which you also have to pay extra for. So we ended up walking around the lake, which you could do for free anywhere. No refreshment stalls were open, no staff walking around to ask, and to top it off we got given a map that was not understandable due to bad photocopying. Nice scenery, but I could get this in many places for free.
Summary: Over all very poor
