Very pleasant park on the edge of the city. A few interesting things like Captains Cook's cottage but for the most part it is a very well maintained green space that is very good to walk through and sit in.

Beautiful to stroll through at any time of year. Well maintained, wide paths suitable for wheelchairs. Something for everyone. Highly recommended.
