There are plenty of benches and parking costs are very reasonable. There are toilet, fast food outlet also selling wonderful New Forest ice-cream and a stalwart of a Mr Whippy type ice-cream...

Mayflower park has some reasonable swings and slides to play on with some very basic toilets next door and an all important cafe for tea/coffee/chips whilst you watch.

It's only a small park, but it does have a exceptional view across the Test River and Southampton Water. This is the place to come and watch the massive cruise ships come and go from their terminal. It's also very easy to get to from the town centre. A short stroll.

Mayflower is a nice park for families with plenty of open space for a game of football or to fly a kite. The views are nice looking out over the water and they have a fantastic play park for the kids. The park can get a bit crowded but surely thats a sign that it is good. They also have... More

On the day we arrived there seemed to be a circus setting up, so we could not see much. A Caribbean ship left just before we got there. The cruise ship are in on Wednesday, so that would be a good day to go.
