    Big park and beautiful. You can relax by the river or just stroll around the lovely gardens. I really enjoyed going here and would recommend although parking is tough on a Sunday.  more »

    Absolutely beautiful park. I only just discovered it recently and I feel so robbed for not knowing about this place earlier. We had a baby shower here and it was amazing. Such a great space and well looked after. So green, super clean. Terrific for children to enjoy the playground and fields. Definitely recommend for events!

    Fantastic for families with young kids particularly when the weather warms up. Shaded rock pools, paths for scooters, and pleanty of space (a non issue if you bring your own shelter. Parking can be a bit tough, so plan to be there early or after lunchtime.

    Great open space for kids to play with high degree of safety. Quieter areas for adults away from screaming kids. One of the best parks I know.

    It is a great place for a walk with your dog, a picnic with family or friends or just with your loved one. It has a great playground for kids and a great water play area. You can ride your bike in there as well or just take a leisurely stroll. Lots of different walks within the park.
