Lovely to see so many families enjoy the beautiful open spaces. Cyclists, dog walkers, families with children enjoying the views, the flowers and the river. Cafe popular too. Close to city centre yet quiet and peaceful.

There are no fixed facilities there and I don't know the regulations regarding portable barbecues.. Sorry I can't be of more help. Perhaps you could contact the town hall or local tourist information.
