More than enough to amuse small children. Pitch and putt is available and t here are wide open spaces for picnics and games. Free par king which is... More

This park deserves more attention from the city council. It has a great location and is spacious. It is a great picnic spot for city dwellers without having to travel miles.

This park is very close to my house so I frequently walk my dog here. The park is lovely and overlooks the water and local wildlife. There is plenty of space to do stuff here with groups of people or to do your own thing. There are tennis courts, a skate park, goal posts, two childrens parks and if you... More

This park, to be fair, provided a nice variety of things to do including walks along the banks of the Itchen. However on a few occasions I have been here, local youths have heckled and thrown verbal abuse for no apparent reason other than for sport. I hope the incidents are isolated but they happened more than once when I've... More

Needs proper clean toilets, open sensible hours. I am disgusted by people who don't clean up after their dogs. I like the riverside walk, the swans on the river, little trains at weekends for children. There are 3 playgrounds and a skate park for young people.

Very pretty park. Plenty of open space. Perfect for a daily jog. The park is very well used in the summer, but it does not feel over-crowded.
