  • An excellent afternoon in a well kept and well designed park. From the winding path and stream that leads down into the main park, to the lake with its unique band stand, everything is well cared for. The main purpose of our visit was to see the brass band concert which is a regular Sunday afternoon feature during the summer months. Simply Brass did not disappoint. Lots of play areas for the kids, boat hire on the lake, a pleasant cafe and also a naval reenactment every Monday in the summer. Well worth a visit if you are in Scarborough
  • Brilliant park. Been coming here since I was a young child and now take my own. We had a wonderful time on the pedalos and they weren't expensive at £8 for a family of 4. The food at the cafe was lovely and again reasonably priced. There was a Punch and Judy show on and a parade as well. Such a lovely place.
  • Absolutely stunning park. Well maintained and beautifully laid out gardens. The train ride is a real gem, we ended up riding 3 times. In as many days. Would love to experience a concert at the outdoor theatre, it looks like it would be a real trip!! Def worth a ride on the pedalo boats round the lake. 100% recommend.
  • Love it here. So much variety of wildlife and activities. Peaceful up the top end of the gardens too. Little streams flowing through, squirrels, pigeons, ducks, geese, sparrows, all the varieties. I love that there is now more then one choice of cafe. There is the Chinese gardens at the top of the waterfall be sure to visit it's beautiful.
  • Been going to this park since I was a bairn. Lovely Asian inspired features. Lots of greenery and shaded walks. Lovely in summer when weather is good and flowers are in bloom. Nice boating lake. Plenty of seating. Cafe and toilets on site. Great for seeing squirrels who will feed from you. A green oasis and a credit to Scarborough
