“An oasis in the suburbs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is a hidden gem. The gardens are a photographers dream and it is so quiet and peaceful there. Very few people seem to know about this tiny park which is hidden away and it is well worth a visit.

“A well kept park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a small and well kept park with an interesting mix of plants growing in rockeries, terraces etc. A must for ideas for the garden.

“Lovely park easily accessed by public transport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Fletcher Moss is a lovely part for a wander, no matter the weather! The gardens are well designed and full of interest and there is a cafe within the grounds with bars and restaurants nearby.

There is also a large picnic area, should you fancy saving a bit of money, which is also perfect for relaxing and people watching.

Excellent public transport links means that it is very accessible from city centre and makes for an affordable day out.

The community orchard (just by the rugby area) will be a delightful addition when it establishes, too!

“Beautiful flowers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

I have visited fletcher moss park a lot and have always loved looking and taking in all the beautiful flowers and interesting lakes. It is very well looked after and it is the last place you'd expect to come across any litter. It is well located near the village which is handy as you know you aren't that far away from shops and caffe's. I have often come on family walks and had a lovely visit everytime.
