The gardens at this time of year are stunning. Usually the gardeners make a working clock in the flowerbeds outside the Cartwright Hall. This is worth a visit just to see the superb marble statues and figures housed there. Good sized childrens' play area below the hall and the lake can be walked around fairly easily. I think there is... More

We visited the park when there was a fair in town and it was really busy.The boating lake looked like it needed repainting and the cafe there was manic, we couldn't get a coffee as the queue was so long and there were only handful of tables which were all full. There were so many pushchairs and bikes on the... More

Boating, water fountains, art gallery, bowling, botanical gardens and a big childrens play area. Around the park is a footpath were you'll see loads of people walking/running every morning. Its about a mile long and often holds charity runs

Very large area and well laid out. Lots of walking up and down the sloping areas with trees and bushes suitable for photography. There is a river area and nearby is a kids playtime place. We went inside the house in the centre of the grounds and it was a worthwhile visit, full of information about the park and some... More

There is a nice play area for children sad to say they are infested with rotten, spoiled children whose parents probably never bothered to teach manners. Well I guess they are what they came from! My 3 year old daughter got injured due to these uncivilised children of uncivilised parents!! They should put community officers around this park at least... More

The play area is one of the best around with equipment for all ages, fenced off and well maintained. There is a beautiful botanic garden which is lovely year round but especially when the Acers are in coloured leaf. The museum and gallery have interesting permanent exhibitions as well as visiting exhibitions. Well worth a visit.

This is a lovely park, with lots going on and some great history, you can forget you are in the city in here.
