My kids loved it. I especially liked the water play area on a hot day. Gardens were beautiful in full bloom. Nice place to visit.

A very nice park, lake & gardens very close to the centre of town. Great for a picnic if you don't want to go further into the Peak

This is a splendid resource for all- well kept gardens, peaceful atmosphere but varied with green space, play area, and waterside walk. Cafe facility would be a plus.
