We wandered through the park on a sunny afternoon and it was very nice. The flower beds look amazing and colourful and the harbour is not far away so it was very nice to have a gentle walk through although it's not a huge park by any means so you can walk through it in 5-10 minutes or find somewhere...

Nice little gardens, benches and fountain with a bust commemorating the famed author. Right near the harbour and shops.

The gardens have recently been updated and look lovely, with a wonderful café, loos, benches, mini-golf, duck pond and tennis and bowling courts. Further along is a large area where you can sunbathe or picnic or just let the kids run around. It's just across from the beach, so nice sea views too.

The gardens are frozen in time, a wonderful place to just sit think and to watch the world go by. When the sun shines its a little bit of Eden! You can smell the sea and the flowers. The wife and I always spend an hour or two just sitting and do not consider it a waste of time.

One of those unique places where you think time has stopped. Beautiful, natural and quiet. a beautiful Georgian leftover gracing the modern world and putting it to shame.

Cary Gardens is a beautiful, well laid out garden with lovely views across Tor Bay. The centre piece is the fine ornamental fountain, and in the summer months has the big wheel. On a clear day you can see for miles, right across to Paignton, Brixham and Berry Head from the top of the wheel. There are nice paths through... More
