A lovely collection of themed mini gardens in the new waterfront development area. Interesting information about each garden area. Well maintained, although remains of someone's party the night before still evident mid morning.

Slessor Gardens is a great addition to the city. Great location. Lots of uses, and love the little mini gardens. Lots of seating, and great area for exercise.

Basically it's what it says on the tin. During the day, toilet facilities are seemingly non-existent. (Maybe I just didn't find them) Not sure of the purpose, if it's a venue for evenings or an isolated park on a giant traffic island. Wouldn't have thought...More

Great place for to go see a band. Small venue with amazing sound. A bit expensive for drink at £5 for wine or beer. Have a good drink before you go. Toilet facilities were a bit sparse.

It's a really nice new area to go in the city centre for some outdoor relaxation. even though it's near main roads, the grass pitch is big enough that you feel miles away from it, and the hedged seating areas are a really lovely touch....More
