An absolutely beautiful place to have a pic NIC on a nice summers day. Only one down side to this place is that it's unsuitable for a buggy. If you have children that are walking then go.... Gorgeous!

We enjoyed a short walk over the oriental style bridges in this water garden looking at the ducks. Cool, quiet, relaxing and free.

Have a picnic, play tennis, have a walk, watch the swans or ducks, play in the park, eat Solleys ice cream or just gave a bbq with friends....so many things to do here, it's a free natural place to just be and enjoy.

lovely stroll around beautiful grounds, play area for kids etc.(although more kids seem to be in kearsney abbey) so can be pretty peaceful. most kids I see here are trying to net tiny fish, but thankfully always seem to empty their buckets back in.
