We love taking the grandchildren to Lister Park, mainly because of the play area. It has some great climbing frames, swings and rides for them to play on. There are usually other kids around for them to play along with. The park also has a large boating lake, which is populated by ducks, moorhens and other waterfowl. In Spring, you... More

Went with partner and lil one, took a friends two children too. Was a nice day, busy, went on the boats. Then we went to the ice cream van, was £2 for a 99p flake icecream which I thought was ridiculous as usually they charge 99p.. But it's ok paid it and overall had a good day.

Lovely, friendly, clean park, perfect for killing a few hours. Plenty of free parking and there is a playground, boating lake and a cafe area but we didn't use that. Everything is well maintained and it's nice to find a park that isn't covered in dog dirt and rubbish.

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
