The park is set around a large lake which offers water activities in late spring/summer. It has a great feel, even on a bleak early spring day and would be idillic once the spring flush of trees and flowers come into bloom

A small tranquil park that is soooo peaceful to just sit and relax. Bring a picnic, slow down, watch the ducks in the pond , appreciate the flowers in this lovely landscaped retreat. You'll enjoy coming here soooo much!

Beautiful park in the heart of the city. Located just behind the castle, it also includes the beautiful blue Orthodox church. It is a perfect place for kids and to have a picnic.

Our Overseas Adventure Travel tour group visited the Castle, and later took a walk in the park. For a small town, this is a surprisingly wonderful park. Gravel paths meander around the lake with fountains, and statues/sculptures without descriptive plaques give it a touch of...More

Not a large lake. Easy to walk around (level footpath). Fountains abound. Castle a few hundred metres away and clearly visible. Open air concert arena at one end. Very lush (summer 2016) with strong green grass and hundreds of mature trees. Somewhere special to enjoy...More
