“Big o'garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

It's like a garden filled with Scene kids. They all congregate around the band stand and huff paint thinner. Stay away from those kids and you'll be alright.

“walking to the station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I think it is lovely and a pretty walk through to the station from the bus station. The only thing I do not like is the down and outs that hang around the benches sometimes.

“Dane John view.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Walking along the walls into the garden was a nice way to spend a relaxing Sunday. Climbing up the mound was well worth it to see the view over the city.

“Tend to avoid”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Nice gardens with exciting play area but usually overrun with drunks and 'chavs' that bring this beautiful place down. If only it was managed more by security/police. I would recommend it but if overrun with hooligans try west gate gardens.
