This park is a real gem. Beautifully laid out gardens and lovely views out to sea and over the city. A lovely peaceful place to have a wander or sit with a drink or ice cream.

This is a lovely place to amble around, it has a lovely lake and fountain. No charge for entry and a nice café and toilets. Lovely views too over the harbour and nice place to sit for a while.
