Well maintained parks
Oct 2021 • Family
The two parks are on either side of Ocean Road. North Marine Park is very green and a nice walk along to the bowling green. South Marine Park has the boating lake with swan boats, Minchellas cafe, toilets, children’s play parks, miniature railway, bandstand and plenty of green area to play. Always popular and a great place to spend an hour.

Sunny Day!

Parks are so clean and tidy. I've just moved to the area and I go for a walk here every day. Everyone is very friendly and people say hello but also social distance.

Lovely green space

Beautiful green space so close to the coast. North very definitely more pleasant that South which lets itself down with overgrown flowerbeds, vandalism and graffiti and a lake in need of a clean

A nice contrast to the amusement park
Jul 2021
A nice park visited on a hot day during the week. Lovely to see plenty of people whether singles, couples and families enjoying all the park had to offer away from the amusement park opposite. The park has plenty to offer with miniature railway, lake with pedelos , cafe and nice gardens. Lovely.

A lovely park
Jul 2021 • Couples
We hadn't been to the parks for 20 years and were very pleasantly surprised to find them very well used. There were people out on the lake and we went for a ride on the steam train. There are lots of benches, toilet facilities and a decent looking cafe. The outer edges of the park are not well kept but generally the parks are looked after.

Disappointed
Jun 2021
Beautiful parks. Calm and peaceful in the north park and everyone had their dogs either on a lead or under good control.
On entering the south park we were pleased to see the prominent notice saying dogs must be on short leads (no longer than 1.5m). But within 5 metres of entering the park a dog was running around off the lead altogether, on the grass and on the pathway far from its owners. We made a quick exit.
Somebody please tell me this area isn't typical of this kind of anti social behaviour?

Lovely place.

Walked around here. It was really clean and well looked after. I am disabled and it was really accessible. Lots of people having fun but spaced out for COVID which was great. Lovely place and well looked after.
