  • It is a lovely place in the summer. It is open to the public all year and it's size means it takes more than ten minutes to get around. There are lots of gems hidden about the park, from the wizard carved into a tree, to wooden owls and the oriental gardens. There are rowing boats and pedal boats to hire during summer months and a couple of ice cream stands. There are often swans, seagulls, ducks and other aquatic birds to be found in the lake. It is nice for a gentle stroll around in the summer sun when you're all beached out and just want a peaceful wander.
  • Will be back to its best this year lot of work going on. The old cafe up the big steps is like a being at a church hall!! Scones with a bit of jam and butter in cling film!! Coffee good out of machine. Could be made into a fantastic place
  • One of my favourite places in Scarborough. A beautiful place. There's things to do down near the lake, whether it's watching the ship battles (chargeable), or taking out a rowing boat or pedalo (chargeable), or grabbing some food, or an ice-cream. Alternatively, if you're looking for a peaceful walk head up near the bridge, where pigeons or squirrels will happily come over to be fed. Head further up the paths for some beautiful parkland, whatever the season.
  • Very nice place to make up your own short walk around the woodland following streams and ponds. Different wildlife can be seen throughout such as squirrels and ducks. If you'd like a short, relaxing walk, this is a suitable place to do so.
  • Very clean and tidy. Plenty of seating all around to sit and watch the world go by. Disability friendly. Pleasant walk. X
