We walked down to the lakes which had lots of birds and also some eels. The trees were in autumn colours.

“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.
