“Little jem on the outskirts.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The park was well laid out with floral bedding plants, plenty of seating to relax and enjoy on warm sunny day. in the background a beautiful Art Deco building used a Cafeteria, which is well worth a visit.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

It's a great place to go. You can have a we ride on a pedal boat for round about £5 it's a lovley park & the kids love it. Only one thing is it is a bit out of the way so if you have children your best getting a taxi as I made that mistake and walked for ages but got there in the end.
