Well kept park only a short walk from city centre and alongside River Eden. Plenty of good walks in park and along the riverside. Good play area for children. Good to spent a restful couple of hours on a summers afternoon.

Visited this park primarily for the children's play area but it contains much more. Lovely walks by the river and joins another memorial park which contains even more interesting features. A good walk on a nice day for a couple of hours or more!

I love the park but the parking at Sheepmount is ridiculous. Camper vans always parked there, people parking there all day & going off to work. Not fair if you’re just wanting to park and go for a picnic or a walk with the dog....More

It has an enormous grassfield where concerts are held for example in July Little Mix are coming and it is held there. However during a flood or in rain it gets very, very boggy.
