Visited in November for a Remembrance Service. Many, many crosses had been planted to remember the fallen soldiers. The army band played and it was a lovely ceremony.

Peace and tranquility when you want it in a very busy noisy area. A lovely play area for little ones besides lovely walks.

Saltwell Park is always a wonderful trip, there are so many paths to take. Lovely gardens and tons of grass for the kids to play on. Great place to go for a walk especially in the summer

There is free parking, disabled and electric vehicle parking. It does get busy at peak times and sometimes people park on the verge of road and grass.
