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?

A lovely park with a fairly large cafe area. Well equipped for Mom's and babies, food adequate but plenty of ice cream and drinks. Toilet facilities nearby. Plenty of street parking. Large children 's play area. Lots of seats and shade.

This lovely park was over run with dogs off leads. They were running in and out of cafe unchecked, generally a nuisance. There were some considerate dog owners who had obedient dogs on leads. Disappointed.

I was surprised when I saw squirrels running around which made my day. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Many different types of people visit this park which is cool.

I would give this place a better rating but I have no idea why it doesnt allow dogs. its inside a very dog-busy park, has outside seating but you cannot order anything if you have a dog with you - there is no legal issue since they do not have an open kitchen. the food is alright, usual cafe fare,...

Dear Jennifer, I am sorry you were not happy with your last visit to the café. I would just like to point out that we do allow dogs on the patio if they are on a lead and you may have your dog with you, on a lead, when you order at the counter. We do not however allow dogs... More

Probably the best park in Hove/Brighton area. Lovely café, play area for kids, goldfish pond, picnic area and good parking, great all year round
