Lovely well kept gardens inside a popular local park. There's not a lot to it however what there is is well kept and incredibly pleasant. It has a small car park though I just walked and it's accessible by bike. Evidence that it is well cared for.

I stopped here on impulse and went for an impromptu stroll. The gardens are really pretty and a haven of peace and tranquility. There were hardly any people about. A great place to wind down. Beautifully kept too.

We visited here recently and i must say we were a bit disappointed. Its a lovely little park but the gardens are in need of some planting and care. It lacked colour and there were some obvious borders that had previously had plants in,i felt these would have looked lovely if they were dug over and new plants put in.... More

Have not been for yonks, it was good to see that it was still being looked after, and as nice as I remember . It is good to be able to relax and switch off . I have many happy memories from my youth when I frequented the gardens. It was a favourite place for a stroll when I was... More

Nice park for a jog or to walk the dog but definitely not a botantic garden. Visited the park in June and there was only three colours.

Hubby and I visited the gardens last month and we both enjoyed them very much. There are a few remote benches and it's so nice to relax in a quiet place in a sunny afternoon.
