A great place for a morning or afternoon walk. If it is wet just take your wellies! We did and had a great time. There are good views of the area and lots of interesting quirks ( go and find out. ) They also do very good organised school trips for any teachers out there. Definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful clean park with lots of area to walk around, go see the boats in the harbour and then the main attraction is the park! For toddlers only really has swings but for older kids it's great! Little train is well over priced, only let down

This is an excellent place to relax and there is plenty of room to play games. There is also a miniature railway and the Lifeboat Museum. There are also a few very select shops and a walk to the Thames is another available quest

A lovely park with incredible scenery it is but has its flaws... Firstly the number of equipment that was broken was poor and it was too crammed! It was good as it had different areas for different ages but should have been controlled as there was a horrible young boy who was controlling the slide! He was horrible and nothing... More
