Lovely park and we keep coming back. Our favourite is the south Marine Park as it has the cafe and park plus the main attraction for the kids is the miniature railway. It runs round the central lake with its quaint steam engine for the reasonable price of £1.50. It’s also got s great adventure playground and sand pit with working mechanical toys.
Lovely grounds and attractions. Plus in the summer you can take a boat on the lake. Recommend

Have visited both parks frequently and have found the gardens and facilities well maintained and flower beds very pleasing to the eye.

Walked through the park every day. Great view of the sea. I don’t think it was wheelchair friendly. Very hilly in and around park.

Lovely walk through a well maintained park - eating our fish and chips - BUT - watch out for the greedy seagulls!

We have been going to this park for over 50 years and it's still going strong . We have seen a lot of changes over the years all for the good I must say , it's so close to the sea front and the town and we always see a mix of young and old enjoying it . I think it's the pride and joy for local people .

Really surprised at how nice this park is, really enjoyed the little train ride, two playgrounds, one for babies and young kids and another for older. Toilets very clean. Lovely picnic spots. The only downside for me was that it’s quite a big park but only three picnic benches. Great position opposite ocean beach and sea though
