“Used this Park with my Family for many years”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Dont see why you should have to pay to park here as it is common ground? but a nice relaxing place in the winter eating fish and chips. In the car of course.

“Good Solent views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Always make for Mayflower Park when there is anything going on on Southampton Water. It is normally easily accessible and gives you the best views across the water.

“Mayflower Park Southampton”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I'm a keen photographer, love ships and boats and I have a free pensioner's bus pass so I often go to Southampton, take a bus to Town Quay and then wander over to Mayflower Park if I see anything interesting. From Mayflower Park there's an excellent view of any ships which are in the berth next to it. Unfortunately, the park itself is tatty. There's a wooden shelter which looks much the worse for wear, a sports court which has seen better days and not much else. The kiddies' play area looks well stocked (from a distance anyway, as I have no kids of that age any more I haven't been in it) and the car park - although fairly small - is a reasonable size if you just want to spend an hour or so there. On the plus side there's always a lot to see if you like the sea and ships and there's a good view over Southampton Water. On the minus side it could do with an overhaul: nothing major, just a bit of sprucing up.
