  • A real picturesque location where you have small lake in the middle of the park. The park has big walkway around the lake, lush green garden amongst lush green trees. Worth spending 2-3 hours.  more »

  • Fantastic open space. Cycling, walking or playing your favourite outdoor sport. Especially on a beautiful sunny day in Autumn or spring. Deans ave side in spring is magnificent with blossoms in full flower.
  • Nice been public space. Large area which has a lot of events. Has a golf course on our as well which I think detracts from it a bit. Has the botanic gardens which are very nice. Cool ducks
  • This is the gorgeous place where I never been to so far since i was born. From the park, we have lots of memorial things. I could say this is a huge playground where give massive refreshment and enjoyment to us.
  • Beautiful park, seems like there is always lots going on and plenty to see and do. In our limited time there we loved it very much.
  • Great for walks and getting fresh air. Great for Pokemon too 😂
