  • We went here well out of season in October but had a very pleasant hour wandering around. There was still lots to see and photograph but I would imagine it would be breathtaking in the summer.  more »

  • A peaceful park but such a pity it is no longer tended and looked after carefully. The children's playground and picnic benches are great but I miss the flowers and plants which used to be looked after so well.
  • This is a hidden treasure!
  • A beautiful park! Officers are making a very good job!

  • Year after year it is deteriorating because it is poorly maintained. Free why not if you find ways to keep it in the State where it was known it a few years ago. And then more store? Yet it was nice to freshen up on the terrace. So big disappointment this year!
