No, the park is open plan and surrounded by hedges that are not necessarily ‘dog-proof. You do however have secure enclosed gardens where you can relax with your furry friends.

However, this journey is only recommended if you are comfortable with traveling by public transport with your pet and are fully aware of the costs involved.
