Pleasant tree lined area, ideal for strolling with dogs or sitting by the river on a Summer's day. Beautiful row of old plane trees for shade and a few benches for seating. Cafe and pub for refreshments, band playing on Summer Sundays.

A lovely place to wander, feed the ducks and enjoy the summer weather. The gardens border the Thames and are easily accessed from the town.
