Its time for getting out and about so how about visiting a dog walker’s paradise with a vast open space of heathland – perfect for a runaround for children and their pets.
A walk around the pond takes about 40 minutes or hike up to Snowball ride for a longer walk and some amazing views.
The starting point is the NT car park off Priory Lane.
Doggy dos and don’ts: Remember birds are nesting between March and September s don’t let dogs run through the heather during this period or go into the ponds as this will disturb the wildlife.
Try going there on quieter days during the week – as it can get very busy during the weekends and during the bank holidays.
Have fun – but observe the rules – and all will be well for man, child and wildlife.
But – whatever you do – don’t repeat this disgraceful episode that occurred at Frensham Great Pond last year!
