We regularly visit Graves Park to see the animals and let our daughter play in the playground. The animal area's are excellent, great for children and very well maintained. The park is clean and tidy, it has paths around the perimeter if the grass is wet. The playground area is also excellent, lots of swings, slides and climbing frames - seating for parents too!
What a shame that the restaurant just behind the playground lets itself down. When we visited, it was extremely dirty - discarded food on tables and the floor. It looked like it was down to a shortage of staff because the staff there were working very hard. We had 3 drinks and a cake for about a fiver - good value - as was the hot meal menu. If the management can keep the inside a bit cleaner and provide better seats and tables, the place will be a pleasure to visit. We might try it again in Summer, but we're not in a rush.
