Beautifully kept grounds that are a pleasure to walk around. A nice play area for children and a reasonably priced food outlet with seating. Ample parking.

We used to come here a couple of times a month. Now you have to pay to park we go elsewhere. The kids like the play park though. They should get a few animals.

Residing in Swindon, it's always amazing to go to Lydiard Park and fool myself that it's not even Swindon! It really is wonderful to go somewhere pleasant and tranquil; I wish Swindon had more places like this!

While the tarzan trail of our children's young age has sadly passed there is a great modern play area. It is a lovely walk round the lake and we often take visitors here.
