This is a great place to take a walk and sit in a cafe and watch the world go by. They also have a fantastic book fair with an abundance of stalls to purchase if you wish.

Walked here from our hotel and then had a very pleasant stroll around the park. There is a boating lake in the park where rowing boats can be hired. Worth a visit.

This is a large park that is very popular with people of all ages. There are a range of activities from walking, rowing on the small lake, and a children's playground. It is great for a walk in the early evening & soaking up the atmosphere.
