“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Had a walk round here during a break in an event at the leisure centre. An obsolute oasis of tranquility near the centre of town.

“Peaceful haven”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Just returned from a lovely peaceful afternoon strolling through the walled garden near Bangor Castle. The gardens were in full bloom, with a wildflower area, vegetable garden and roses. The garden is very popular with dog owners (there were dog water bowls provided). Parking is a short walk away at the castle or the new Aurora swimming pool car park may actually be closer. There is a small cafe with coffee and ice cream and also toilets available. A beautiful location; highly recommended!
