Yep, it was directly opposite. Between the cafe and the row boat area ran the big concrete path/road which circled the loch, breaking off to head in a southerly direction at the circle`s south-east quarter taking you to the road running along the north end of the two primary schools, one of them St Philips.
Back at the cafe/rowing boat gate, the concrete path`s west direction took you to a north-south running main road outside the park with lots of greenland on it`s other side, including a path leading down to a farm growing lots of rhubarb, (which tasted good!!).
I`m surprised there ain`t no photos, so far, as the cafe, especially inside, was a great example of the architecture of its` day... art-deco maybe, or perhaps pre-war, I think.
