“A very pleasant and relaxing place”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The park is a very nice place to have a picnic or casual lunch in summertime. The weather even in October is so mild that even fish & chips and a cold can of coke are very enjoyable.

The garden is strategically placed in the middle of the town center surrounded by "The County Mall" on an NCP car park on the other and a whole raft of outdoor shops including M&S, TK MAX, and Sainsbury's Local.

There is a very heavy footfall of people moving in and out of the park

“V pleasant - but be warned of Kamikaze CYCLISTS !!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

The memorial gardens are lovely... and I enjoy walking through there - but despite there being a sign saying "NO CYCLISTS" - the place is continually abused by cyclists!

I am disabled and cannot hear well - so image my surprise when the first thing you know about impatient cyclists behind you is the shock of seeing them almost literally on your shoulders.... I know its an easy "cut through" from the shops - but please it spoils such a lovely area when SOME cyclists (not all!) are rude and impatient - even though they shouldnt be there in the first place (and there is no one there to enforce it!!!)

It´s a nice garden and good walk in the park. You can sit there in a good weather and look at the people and beautiful trees and flowers.

“Avoid the evenings.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

A typical, small Memorial Garden, in the heart of Crawley town center. Well kept and laid out, and much used by shop staff at lunch time. But it's spoilt by the drunks tipping out of the pubs in the afternoon. Otherwise, a nice place to sit and think.

“Nice in the day, but a no go area after dark”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Very nice place to sit and watch the world go by if the weather is good, well maintained by the council and handy kids play area nearby BUT after dark it becomes a no-go area with may groups hanging around and reports of attacks locally in the press
