Over priced coffee but in nice gardens. I walk my dog regularly since moving here and as a coffee lover, only been the once which is a shame. Not impressed really

Very picturesque, especially in summer and early autumn. It is so scenic. The slope on which the children's play area is, is quite distinct feature of this park. Not a huge park but quite a few options. It has got a certain mystery (as well as history) around it which is evident. The flats in the background is a bit... More

Visited these gardens a few times in the summer. Very beautiful place to have a picnic and if you can visit midweek in the spring or summer it is usually quiet. Gardens are very well kept and the cafe simple but good. There is also the lovely art shop/gallery nearby which adds to the area.

Such lovely gardens to stroll through on a sunny day. The cafe is always busy and lively. There is time to watch the lawn bowls or tennis, or retire to the private garden.
