  • Love borough gardens so well looked after and nice to spend an afternoon with the young ones on a sunny day. There's a snack bar too, outdoor gym, tennis courts, lovely large kids play area, a gorgeous bandstand and fountain to relax by. A real benefit to Dorchester which is a lovely place to visit and shop at
  • Very pleasant little park to walk around. Some exercise equipment and a couple of tennis courts there too. Also, for those who are interested, there's a fair few Pok├ęstops / Portals for Pokemon Go / Ingress respectively.
  • Always well maintained. Nice play area for young children, coffee kiosk too. Nice lunchtime break from the office. Often good events held throughout the year utilising the bandstand. An excellent public space.
  • Wonderful playground for children. One for adults too so as to exercise. The children enjoy this one also. Beautiful green space with colourful flower beds.
  • beautiful place the real heart of Dorchester Fantastic amenities for children's play. lovely to walk in and peaceful
