Lovely walk with beautiful gardens it’s an all round beautiful walk. The cafe on the park has a good choice and even has a dog section so those taking their dogs out can also sit and eat/drink. If only the staff knew how to be friendly it would make the time you usually have to be served more pleasant.

Beautiful riverside walks & lovely park area. Great on a warm sunny day. Close to Preston Town centre. Nearby pubs and refreshment areas.

Nice park, improved greatly over the years. As with most parks summertime is the time to visit to fullyenjoy the grasses areas. Guild wheel bonus. Not sure if I'd go at night though

These parks are adjoining and are unbelievably close to the city centre at the far side of Winckley Square. Beautiful parks with riverside walks and, for refreshments, The Continental pub at the end of Miller Park.

After a busy morning, this is the perfect place to spend a while in the afternoon sunshine, taking in the sights and sounds of nature at its most colourful. The autumn landscape is great.

A walk through these two parks is probably one of the most beautiful walks in a city I have ever done. A favourite walk of the Turner prize winning artist Lubaina Hamid. The walkway down Avenham Colonnade into the park is so lovely. Lots of interesting features in both parks and the avenue along the riverside is stunning.

Beautiful, a credit to the people who maintain it. I walk through it if I visit the town centre, so much greenery so close to town.

Weather permitting, I come here every opportunity I get. It's a great walk and depending on how you decide to tackle it, great exercise.

There are several sections, all with great sights, whether it's the Japanese style garden, the old buildings, the fountain, or the river.

There is also a cafe here, but I will review that separately. In summary, it's pretty good, when you catch it actually open and serving food...

This is the first and favourite place I bring visitors when they come to see me in Preston.
