  • Great for short walks, you can loop around the lake feed the ducks and stop off for an ice cream, not much more you need in a park.
  • nice walk by yourself, with a friend, or with family. Clean and tidy as well. Parking is free but it can get crowded. Benches by the water's edge are really nice.
  • Best place around to take your dogs. Great views and nice and clean.
  • Big and nice park to walk. Attention to the cherry trees in bloom.
  • Lovely park, beautiful flowers. Good tea shop
