There's routes that you can take around the whole park. Or you can just visit the lake where you can boat (a little expensive for 30 mins but it is good fun). Great for families, cafe on the lake. Avoid early evenings (groups tend to gather which can be intimidating).

First visit to Lister Park. Enjoyed the boat ride. Theres a nice wee cafe with seating outside. Had icecream and theres plenty of space for the kids to play football or in the football parks. There was a flame throwing juggler then music started. Would like to take a picnic next time and visit the gallery.

As usual, we had a pleasant wander through here up to Cartwright Hall. It has changed somewhat since I was young, but is still a tranquil oasis alongside a busy road.

Lister park is a a wonderful park and great family entertainer. We had a great picnic, it has a play area for the older ones and one for the younger ones. A boat ride, food facility, a water area for the children to enjoy and much much more. Would defiantly recommend!!!!!!
