The Victorian-style park features many historical buildings nestled among dozens of flowerbeds, and includes a large children’s play area, a pond, and sporting facilities. Spend the day playing tennis at the courts or read under the shade of an old oak tree. During the summer months, you can access the paddling pool and even attend free concerts. Swing by the park cafe for a relaxing cup of coffee while taking in the beautiful scenery.

Really lovely park. Well maintained with a variety of activities. The kids play area has loads of different play areas, there is also a shallow paddling pool, a couple of cafes (only got ice creams so not sure what else they do) and public restrooms. We were there on a very busy day so the restrooms weren't in the best condition, but at least they were there and free and available.
Beautifully kept Victorian gardens with interesting spa well features. A lively play area for the kids with a kiosk for refreshments. Also a cafe with seating at the other end of the gardens. It's a lovely place to have a stroll and a break from the shops.
