Lovely when quiet, but often very busy. Of course as a public gardens, there is no restriction on this (and should not be).

Lots of activity both Satuday and Sunday. Singers, boat trips and lots of craft stalls, worth a look.

I love flowers. Here I have had a lot of photos as the flowers were of multi-colors . It's nice to sit here with all these flowers around fronting the River Avon with all those ducks leisurely swimming The view is so refreshing.

Such a pretty place. So beautiful walking along, seeing everyone enjoying themselves on the river and of course, the swans. Definitely worth a visit, it's Stratford at its best!

What a beautiful place to sit and relax, when we were there a young lady was busking she had a lovely voice and it added to the experience, there's a selection of food outlets if you want a snack. Go and enjoy it

Really nice park to relax and soak up the Stratford vibe. It was very tidy, easy to move around a pushchair and there was plenty to see.

Love what they've done with the gardens in front of the RSC. Such a lovely atmosphere there with music always playing from buskers and ice cream barges dotted around.
