Might just be the season but this park was almost empty at 4 pm on a Sunday. Made for a peaceful stroll by the duck pond.

Lovely park to stroll around with the children to feed the ducks, have a ice cream. The famous pub The fighting Cocks sits on the outskirts and is lovely to visit, don't forget the museum which is a must to visit. Swings for the kids and good parking and all free.

Visited to look at the Roman remains, was not disappointed, the park was wonderful an education really, full of bird life & the Roman wall was magnificent as was the theatre across the road, (small entrance fee payable for the theatre) Roman history located within what is probably the best park I have ever been in.

Wide open spaces of a run around. Lots of walks and water for feeding birds. The tea room is good but not large enough for the numbers. However the park is clean, big with lots to see and do. Recommended.

It's lovely to take a walk through the park there's lots of things to do and most importantly, it's a place to go and enjoy some fresh air away from the bustling city centre!
