What do other visitors say?

Our cockerpoo can hardly contain himself on the car ride to the park. He absolutely loves it (especially the puddles which he loves to lay in) and enjoys hours of fetching his ball. We have met some lovely dogs and owners on our travels around this super park, and just love the birdsong too.

Good evening........I am shocked to read that you will be charging car parking early 2015, I am a regular local cobham resident dog walker at 7 am every morning for half an hour (for the last two years) and will soon be paying 1.50 for parking my car! I hope you will be bringing in an altertanive payment method by introducing free parking for first hour and then on maybe charge 1.50......Please consider as you will lose dog walking visitors!!!!!

Cobham resident, 23/Jan/2015

In the light of significant public funding cuts, we have to start charging for car parking to ensure we can continue to maintain Jeskyns and ensure it remains a special place for all who love visting it. A 30 annual pass will also be available (that is approximately 60p per week). We feel this is good value and all money raised will go directly towards looking after Jeskyns.

What are the rules on owners who continue to allow their dogs to run off lead and then attack other dogs? I was disgusted today after my lab had her face bitten I had to pursue the woman to the car park ... Blood dripping from my dogs wound I was spoken to by another owner who informed me the same dog's ( only 1 without warning approached my dog and lunged at her ) had tried to attack theirs a few days ago !!! I have her car registration number !!!
