Absolutely mine and my sons favourite park, a really beautiful place to spend an afternoon and the volunteers who do the gardening here really do an amazing job. Very happy to love just 5 minutes away from this park.

Great for a city break. Easy walking distance to town. Also quiet walk away from town along Riverside. Railway museum is worth a visit

Lovely park which is totally spoiled by the geese. There is goose poop all over the paths and the grass where children are supposed to be able to play. Basically you can’t walk without looking down to make sure you do t step in it. The ponds are absolutely filthy and it’s a real shame that the council don’t do anything about it - clearly their priorities are on other things rather than making a public space nicer for everyone e.g the brand new York Council head office building right inside the city walls on prime real estate. We live 5 mins walks away and won’t be going again it’s that bad.York council need to cull the geese or introduce some natural predators to scare them away. Such a shame because it could be a really lovely park.

Used to be a lovely park, it seems to have been let go a bit. Large amounts of dog mess all over the place. Luckily this park is really close to the river. So went for a walk along there instead. The park has a small car park, which is pay and display.
