“Lovely place to walk.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Walked for over an hour here with family. Easter Monday - good to see so many people using the park. Nice cafe too. It would be a cool place in the hot summers.

“Always changing always there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Regularly take a circular walk around the lakes.

Always seems to be something showing colour and always an impressive presentation of shades of green.
Well kept, secure and peaceful.

“Lovely gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Lovely gardens! They were really picturesque and peaceful. They were kept well, but you could still access the paths and the gardens/grass, as well as the lakes and nice little spots to sit.

“Beautiful escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

You shouldn't miss these gardens if you like parklands or flowers. There is quite a variety with lots of specialist sections and a lot of space. Beautiful little kids area too. Take a picnic, sun screen and stay all day by the lake or on the hill
