Nice park but suffers as a teenage hangout. The tennis courts used to be good until they became a multi purpose area now you have kids trying to play football over tennis nets so its useless for anything!

A little bit flooded when we visited, but it is a lovely park with lots of Canada geese and some white ducks. Flowers had started to bloom, but I imagine it is much more colourful in the Summer months. Plenty for children to do here and a splash pool in the warmer months !

St. Oswald's is a lovely town Church, right in the centre of Ashbourne. The Clergy and congregation are very welcoming to visitors, as they were to us when we moved to Ashbourne this year. The church is very interesting and the graveyard is a picture in the Spring, with thousands of snowdrops and other bulbs.
