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!!!!!!

We liked wandering through Cartwright Hall and viewing the art collections. The park is lovely, and on the sunny day we visited was full of families just enjoying it. It was a happy place.

This place is brilliant to take kids out, as well as being a tourist resort. It has plenty of activities for children like botanic gardens. Also football and basketball pitches and a bowling green. . Give it 10 out 10..

The spring flowers were in bloom, the park very clean, and lots of interesting sculptures and things to see.

Quite a big park outside of the city centre, yet centrally located. Nice to have stroll in a beautiful garden setting. There is a big childrens' playground. Art gallery in Cartwright Hall inside the park (we didn't go to that). Relaxed athmosphere with mainly families and small groups of adults taking a stroll.

The layout of the park is very simple. There are loads to do and see, my favourite part is the urban gardens. On a sunny day its worth a visit!
