“Lovely!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

A lovely place to take a walk or have a picnic. It is beautiful in the sunshine and the size ensures that there is enough space. The gardens are kept in good order and there is usually activities happening in the summer months.

“Spring Walk”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This park lies near the river and city centre. The spring flowers are worth seeing. It is a lovely walk and there are some guided tours available.

“Great in Summer!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

These gardens are superb in Summer - it has the museum if you don't want to stay outdoors and then there's masses of lush green grass, a small part with some ruins on which is interesting and also situated by the river so lots of interesting things to look at whether it be wildlife, people watching or simply just to be alone with a book or playing with friends, it really is a great place.
