  • really nice gardens and grass areas here. It's not too busy so nice for a peaceful walk around.
  • My fault I went in winter so seemed empty lovely pink blossoms and autumn leaves
  • Beautifully maintained garden, a short and scenic walk from the city. The toilets are quite aged but clean.
  • Lovely to take the kids for a breath of fresh air and a run around!
