“a haven in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is a centre piece of our city. A good place to sit for a resy when shopping. A lovely place for children to play in summer as there are fountains for them to run in and out of. Restaurants around for the hungry.

“Lovely space in a busy city centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Lovely space to sit and relax (providing the weather is good). In the summer its often heaving with families as kids (and adults) love the fountains. Also in the summer it transforms into the seaside for the kids, so can difficult to find a spot on a sunny day!

“Sunny day in the fountains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This has become a great place to sit in the summer. Kids play in the fountains and you can sit on the grass and relax in the city centre. there are a few nice cafe/restaurants nearby, all chains I believe but most ok. Great on a sunny day. If it's raining go into the winter gardens instead!

“Once famous now infamous”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

A former attraction is now a place where drunks and chavs loiter. Such a shame after all this cost. Perhaps some policing to stop the pot smokers and hoodies scaring off ordinary folk would help!
