Lovely park to walk through, or just to sit and watch the world go by, while having a picnic lunch. Recommended.

A small park but combine it with Palmerston park and East park and you can make a nice walk in the park!

The parks in Southampton are usually full of the drinkers etcetera, for some reason this one seems less popular with them, it's a bit more open , with less big hedges and things to hide behind I suppose, the pathway goes between the civic centre...More
