We were staying at a B&B virtually adjacent to the park so would walk through it to get into the town centre. This park is beautifully maintained & full of colour from the well maintained flower beds.

Lovely park, young children loved feeding the ducks and playing on the play equipment. Crazy golf and high ropes available at a small charge. Close to the town centre so we popped to Tesco for a picnic. Would recommend to anyone.

A lovely, well kept park, lots of lovely grounds with a great play park at the back! Lots of ducks and squirrels, so great for little ones to visit. A lovely place to have a run around and a picnic!

This is a lovely park to take a stroll in or have a picnic. It's lovely and quiet (very little traffic noise) and you wouldn't know it was right in the centre of town. There's often an ice cream van (when the weathers fine). There...More
