“One of the Best!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I've been to this park countless times and it never ceases to amaze me. There always seems to be some part undiscovered and just as beautiful as the rest.

The children's play area is great and gives hours of fun to the little ones. You also have the Sensory Garden, which is full of beautiful flowers, paths to follow and places to picnic. The pond area is also outstanding and often have Heron grazing the long grass.

The only thing for me, which is only my own opinion, is that there seems to be many dog walkers. Lots of dogs running around and creating mayhem. Although, saying that, there is also a none dog section of the park, but it seems a little run down... The owners do seem to keep them under control, which is nice...Mostly :)

On a summer's day, there's very few parks to beat it.

The side where the children's play area is by far the best side of the park, plenty of paths to follow, plenty of seat and tables to have a picnic. The side where there's an outdoor gym is more of a mess and even more full of dogs... not the best really...

But still a wonderful park :)

“Like a memorial-bench festival with plants thrown in for measure”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Such potentially beautiful English and flower gardens spoiled with dozens and dozens of empty benches that could never be filled with enough people to fill them. The park keepers have confused keeping a beautiful park for the pleasure and joy of all with a remberance-bench garden. Over 150 benches in two small gardens. The park keepers have lost the flower plot !
