A dog lovers dream. Great little park where your dog can roam safely. Plenty of space for everyone. This is a nice place to have a BBQ or picnic in the summer away from all the crowds on the beach. If you don't want to take your own food and drinks there is always the Cafe to help you out.... More

Lovely park - a little oasis within the busy metropolis that is Brighton. Beautifully landscaped with lovely tea shops. A great community facility too with a host of events taking place.

A lovely place. Great for families, hanging out with friends, kids playground and a great little cafe reasonably priced for the area. We take our dog and let him off lead away from the busy areas. You can stop and feed the birds. Stroll around, the vibe is chilled and layed back. There are nature areas, tennis courts, and a... More

This is one of brighton's best public parks, well kept and very varied landscaping with hills and trees (and a kids' playground) on one side and tennis courts, cafe and hidden gardens (A rose garden and a sensory garden) on the other. Situated away from busy roads. The cafe was once plain and cheap and is now expensive and characterless... More

Quiet and off the main drag. Often forgotten by tourists. This remains a cool spot to sleep in during hot summer afternoons.

This is a favourite park for walks with our dog and grandchildren. There are lots of different areas with many facilities. The herb garden is beautiful and tai chi enthusiasts can often be seen practising there. The tennis courts are well used. The childrens' play area is well equipped with a variety of swings, slides, climbing suitable for all ages.... More

I've been coming here for years. I even recall it when it was a greasy cafe! Luckily it has more to offer than those times. I've enjoyed many a good coffee, snack, lunch here with fam and friends. Glad of this place being our local park and cafe. Lots of choices on the menu and you can hire it for... More

Great location but why can't they keep the place clean. Went there for breakfast today. Sticky tables, un cleaned sauce bottles, counter and outside area covered in rubbish, kids high chairs with dried food that's not been cleaned off. Big shame as loads of potential. Lovely sunny Sunday morning and about 8 people there. Should've been packed?
