  • 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.
