** please note - officers do patrol the interior of the park where possible in both day and night time. However we can not be there all of the time - the park is vast and unlit with no cctv and very dark at this time of year. We would ask care is taken and considered with personal security and safety when passing through parkland anywhere that is unlit and in darkness especially during winter months when fewer people are around **
