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
