Often go here to take the kids and dogs for a walk, nice that I can grab a coffee too, although the Cafe is a bit expensive! Lovely place in the summer for families to take a picnic and has a decent sized park for the kids to play on.

A picturesque park to spend a few hours and lots of space and pretty sights to do some photography. Also climbing frames for children.

Living not far from this park is a real bonus. The boating lake, kids park and lakeside paths make for a great family day out. The Lakeview Arts Centre building often houses some interesting presentations and theatre productions. The cafe is great, its nice to sit outside watching the lake or pack a picnic and go enjoy the open spaces.... More

Stunning lake for those that like a walk in the park and a fantastic park area for the kids. Lack of parking and gets very busy on sunny days.

Love this place always loads to do and loads of events to partake in, including the boating lake and arts centre. Great playground for the kids and easy access parking directly off the University Boulevard. Fairs throughout the year so keep a look out for the action x

Lengthy traffic diversion took us through the beautiful University grounds but was well signposted. We had such a brilliant time, lots of laughter as we manoeuvred the rowing boat around the lake and the grandchildren paddled their canoe around in circles. We all... More
