Stick to the clear footpaths for a nice, circular route, or settle down in a quiet corner to admire the view while the kids tire themselves out with a good run around.
If you fancy a break, be sure to grab a takeaway coffee (and maybe a snack) from the Coffee Bar at the YSP Centre,
Take a moment to admire the 400-year-old Bretton Hall, as it stands watch over the park, or head out to see if you can find the park's herd of Highland Cows, grazing in the shade.

The park is set less than a mile off the M1, close to junction 38, and offers plenty of parking. YSP is also accessible by bus, and
