A must-see. I love taking visitors here. They are always bowled over by this little treasure. Go back in every season especially early autumn. The Japanese trees up at the back go amazing golden colours which is not to be missed. The kids love the blue bridge.

On the negative side. The pond needs a bit of work. It looked a bit dead and murky.

My wife found this lovely place on trip advisor ) our fault was to go there by foot) it is about 3km from city center, so I would recommend use car or taxi. It is absolutely amazing small park. I have never seen smth similar even in London! There is a small pond with seats around the park, there is small playground for kids. If you want to spend time in nice place and enjoy nature this is right place to go )

Great for young kids day out, love to feed the ducks and then visit play park. The gardens are small as is the park but for little ones up to 4 it is great. Lovely and shady in this hot weather too and take a picnic

This is a nice garden with a duck pond and a nice little looped path. Also, thanks to Conservative councillor Ross Thomson both the and Hazelhead Park have had some much needed investment.

NIce place to have a short stroll on a sunny day, only takes you about 20-30 mins to walk around all of it, lots of nice places to sit and have a picnic as well. Some swings for children hidden at the back. Lovely place
