These gardens are very pretty and well worth a walk round. The gardens are not large but big enough to make the visit worth while.

I always enjoy walking back via the Westgate Gardens, not only for the views, but the beautiful river boat rides. Now it is even better, as an amazing and breathtaking childrens park is open just the other side of the bridge. Free for all.

This park has absolutely everyone you could want from a park, a true delight!!! It is right in the town centre but feel like you a million miles away, great flowers and open spaces and sits against the pretty River Stour!

Lovely area for the summer season to relax and stroll along the gardens and the rest of the park. The River Stour runs along the gardens and you'll get some lovely photos.
