“Lovely place to walk.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Walked for over an hour here with family. Easter Monday - good to see so many people using the park. Nice cafe too. It would be a cool place in the hot summers.

“Always changing always there”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Regularly take a circular walk around the lakes.

Always seems to be something showing colour and always an impressive presentation of shades of green.
Well kept, secure and peaceful.

“Lovely gardens”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Lovely gardens! They were really picturesque and peaceful. They were kept well, but you could still access the paths and the gardens/grass, as well as the lakes and nice little spots to sit.

“beautiful place”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

great place to visit and just wonder around.
its a long walk around but well worth it.
Even if you are not interested in plants it is worth the visit for the lovely scenery, u cant just sit on the grass and relax or people watch which is always fun

“Beautiful escape”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

You shouldn't miss these gardens if you like parklands or flowers. There is quite a variety with lots of specialist sections and a lot of space. Beautiful little kids area too. Take a picnic, sun screen and stay all day by the lake or on the hill
