This is a very run down park. Toilets closed down and covered with graffiti. Just plain terrible. Why has this park been so neglected?

Used to love coming here at lunch times during the warmer months. Just park up and sit on the grass and eat my lunch. Can enjoy the breeze and watch the ferries and big cruiseliners go by

Good place to park and have a snack. The park is on Southampton water, near one of the cruise terminals. There is a grass area and facilities for children

A superb fireworks display and I would recommend viewing from the Town Quay. It was booked out in the park and the town quay gives a better vantage point and a man comes sround with a bucket to collect charitable donations rather than you paying...More
