A very pleasant walk from the centre to the pier and beach. Abundant squirrels as well as aviaries, flowers, park benches and band stand.

Really nice kept gardens and a lovely walk. Little bit off putting with all the beggers asking for money, but still enjoyable. We had fun feeding the squirrels too

Not many flowers in March but lots of people enjoying the gardens and crazy golf. Nice way to walk to town from beach.
