This is a great way to spend an afternoon. The gardens are pretty and the palm house is well worth the visit. Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic while people watching on the grounds.

A truly lovely area to relax and wander among the trees and flowers. It was nice to see so many students relaxing after a long day rather the rushing. The roses were nearly finished but would have been superb at there peak. A credit to the gardeners and planners!

Beautiful venue on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The Palm House is a visual green feast with beautiful green foliage. The park is well kept and is a great place to watch people pass through.
