This park had some of the most amazing statutes and the lake and park area was magnificent. You can walk around the park at your leisure. There are people playing all kinds of music for you to donate and the Crystal Palace was really neat to see. The opening to the park does have people selling items so there you might feel pressured to buy. You can even rent boats on the lake area. Nice place to visit but I would not go in the evening.

It was gorgeous weather & lovely to walk around. There are a lot of sprukers selling imitation gear & public toilets are as rare as hens teeth!

Made two trips to this park and thought it was beautiful. Loved that so many people used it for walking, biking, rollerblading, etc. It is defintely worth the visit and nice to walk through. The lake and the Crystal Palace are true gems here.

This park is beautiful and you can easily find a spot just for yourself. with the lake and monument including other building of interest within the park this place is a definite must stop and though its within the city once your there you feel like you are away from it all.

So much going on. Lots to see. Great place to people watch. Many different areas from gardens to boating lakes. Especially liked Sunday afternoon as the place was "buzzing" with lots of stalls and entertainment.
