Dog Walk

With 7 different signposted trails and five different zones, Jeskynes is great place to walk your dog no matter what time of the year or your level of fitness or ability.  The dog activity area provides various agility tasks for your dog to try and master and the fenced training field is a great idea for all of those dogs in need of a bit of training in a secure enviroment.

The park is linked by pathways known as ‘The Darnley Trail’ to the nearby Shorne Country Park, Cobham Park, Ranscombe Farm Reserve and Ashenbank wood so your walk can really be as long or as short as you like.  Take a look at the maps by clicking on the link above.
