  • Lovely place to either walk through or chill out in. There's a kids area, tennis courts, a kiosk (open when sunny), toilets, outdoor exercise equipment, a band pavilion and a Victorian (possibly) clock in the grounds. They just need to sort out the old lawn bowling area and put something fitting there (work is underway to do "something" but has been stalled for months now)
  • A delightful Victorian garden renovated in 2007. Facilities include tennis courts, bandstand, adult fitness equipment, play area, refreshment kiosk, bowling green (currently an archaeological dig), community room, toilets, clock tower and fountain.
  • One of the best small gardens in the area, summer time is great as they have lots of events happening .
  • I did not expected that this garden is great. However, this lovely garden is more than worth to visit! You must be here when you are in Dorchester!
  • Good for the kids when weather is on form. Always seems so peaceful
