With the main road behind you, walk to the left of the car park and past the building to reach the path. Turn left and follow the circle path around to the lake path. Turn left, and follow the path with the lake on the right.
As the two paths join together, turn left and follow that path to a hedge-lined path running left to right. Go straight on through the gap onto the open park, and turn left to walk around the entire edge of the park. As you walk along the Barnby Dun Road side of the park, turn right at the line of trees and possibly spend a few minutes in the Quiet Garden.
Turn left and then right to walk down part of the hedge-lined path, before turning left on the path you took away from the lake. This time, turn left, walking on the north side of the boating lake. If you’re walking with kids, take the next left for a visit to Sandall Park’s traditional playground, and then turn right down the path which hugs the edge of the lake. Follow this path all around the lake, turning left when the car park comes into view on the left.
