Lovely park with a huge lake, playground and ice cream shop. My nephew loves it and demanded that we jump on a bus to get there.

A lovely little park. A bit under maintained. A waterfall that hasn't been working for over 2 years. A spectacular ornate fountain inside the entrance. A 800m walk around the lake or a 1,300m walk around the perimeter of the park. A good café serving...More

A beautiful park with really interesting parts. The lake with its bird life. The rose garden. There's a lovely playground with a nice cafe. There's an atrium with interesting plants. The "senses" is a must area to go.

I remember this park from my days at school, over fifty years ago! It's acquired a children's play area and café since I last saw it. The lake and its surroundings are very pleasant, and the whole area is planted with lots of trees.

It has a gym trail that you might find in most parks, all equipment was working last time I was there and it proved fun to do whilst enjoying the parks other attractions. Hope you enjoy it.
