“great big slide!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Apart from being a pleasent park to have a walk in, my 5 year old adored the giant tube slide. It was one of the highlights of her holiday! The cafe near the smaller play area loked decent to.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic play park for my 2 year old daughter. She also loved watching the older children in the skate park. We were also fortunate enough to see the Scottish Lawn Bowls on and entrance was free.
The park was beautiful however like many the maintenance of weeds is still low but this didn't put is off. Also beautiful views of the University and Art Galleries.

“Brings back memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

It's been a long time since my last visit.
It's as good as I remember.
Sadly only complaint is the weather we don't have any control over this.
