  • Nice place for a walk. But the car park is overpriced for what you get. I really don't know how they can justify the cost. Not driving there anymore. Also some of the dog owners can be incredibly irresponsible around children.
  • Very picturesque place with plenty of lovely areas to walk or bicycle around. Great place to take your own barbecue, or you can try the restaurant which is very good.
  • A good place for a family day out and even better now they've bought the car park prices down.
  • The park is lovely, the cafe is terrible, dried up cake, then tried to get tea with scones eurgh at least jam and maybe cream, don't do jam and only margarine available. Nobody cleaned up outside tables so had to move trays to the floor to get a table. Very badly managed. It's a pity for such a lovely park.
  • Great outdoor place for all ages. There is a play area for children, area for picnicks and bbq, toilets are also available. Ticketing parking system (cash is no more the only option). Small restaurant serving hot and cold food is also in the park area.

Where to stay in Coventry

A stay among the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the city center is within walking distance of the main attractions. Consider a rental room or B&B on the medieval Spon Street or near the canal. Both locations are scenic and conveniently located near the city center. Full of local eateries and shops, the Earlsdon area offers less expensive apartment rentals.
