  • Very well kept. More of a large garden than a park, but very attractive with an unusual handkerchief tree, a rose garden area and mammoth sized lion statue. Feels like a step into Edwardian England.
  • picture postcard perfect municipal park. statue, check. bandstand, check. kiosk, check. impeccable flower beds check. if you arent a local some of the byways to it through churchyard or abbey are worth exploring
  • Beautiful gardens very well looked after usually a fete or festival there to keep you occupied. Lovely to sit and think. But can get very busy in summer
  • Tidy wee park. Pretty roses, decent lion, numerous commemorations
  • Lovely area to sit out in during summer. Variety of eating options available through different vans and marquees that seem to change quite regularly
