This is a must if you're staying locally or travelling through. Lovely gardens and forest with well cared for walks along the river. Great for a short walk or couple of hours if you have the time. And it's free.

Recently we visited Stratford for my husband's family reunion. We walked through King Edward Park which was lovely with several bridges and one swinging bridge which fascinated our grandson. It is a lovely and peaceful place to visit if you are out for a walk.
