  • One of my Pokemon hangouts! Love taking a drive up here, always got a great community of players up there. The grounds are well kept and bins are always being used. Ice cream hangs out up there at weekends too!!
  • Really nice park for the community. Grass lands for walking the dogs. Park was updated couple of years ago. Gravel pathways. Children's play area. Tennis courts. Basket ball court. Statue of Dorothy Round the tennis star. Modern park keeper offices and public toilets. Rose gardens. Shrubs. Duck pond. Priory Park ruins. Priory house. This is an excellent park for the community. There are shops close by. The 126 bus stops alongside the park.
  • Only recently been to collect pokemon as it's good for stops but the views are ok and it's generally tidy.
  • Good park kids area needs a little TLC
  • Beautiful, clean park with some lovely ruins to explore. There's a tennis court and a children's play area. It's also a good place to catch Pokémon for those addicted to Pokémon go. Plenty of parking too.
