It's just a lovely spot to stroll around, look at the flowers, sit on a bench, have your lunch al fresco, feed the ducks, visit the cafe, visit the museum. Good photo ops too. And the playground looks cool!

A must see beautiful maintained park in the heart of the city Located in the mardyke area the park is a must visit for a picnic and just to watch the swans and birds that visit There is a lovely relaxing restaurant in the park and during some summer months there is music in the band stand

One of the best family outings when the weather is good. Beautifully kept, safe, clean and large park with a coffee shop, hungry ducks and gulls to feed and great children's area with jungle gyms and activities for all ages. Would be great if the public restrooms had a nappy change facility, but those can be found at the cafe... More

This is a great park. Its always well maintained and even though I walk around it every week (sometimes more than three times a week) its great. My little boy is only a baby right now but he is going to love his "back garden".

Excellent newly refurbished playground, landscaping and gardens. Always a good way to while away an hour or two.

I absolutely love this park, I just wish it was a bit bigger. It's a nice contrast from all the buildings. Walking by the river, you wouldn't think that just a few hundred metres away were cars, buses and the lives of busy people

I hate saying this but what were they thinking when doing this park up. Will never go here again. The only part I love is the big field and the gardens at the front.
