Walked around Pannett Park, all be it in the rain!, as a landscape gardener I can safely say don't miss the park. So many paths and separate areas with borders, seating with various views of the gardens and the town and harbour, the art museum is at the top and well worth a visit. It must be said how clean...

Great park, always clean and tidy when we visit here. Lovely to watch the squirrels running around. Pretty flowers, rockery and playground. Good to have many entrances to enter and leave the park.

Whether you want to play in the awesome children's park or take a pleasant stroll Pannett Park is a haven of clever design and thoughtful planning. It's somewhere to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy town centre to enjoy a picnic lunch, then let the little ones burn it off in the play area.

Lovely area to walk around. Large mansion houses along the road near the park. An interesting art gallery in the middle of the park. Marvelous views of the town and plenty of seats to relax and watch the passers by.
