“Just a lovely park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

As previous reviewers have indicated this is a fabulous park to visit and use especially during the summer when visiting bands play in the bandstand in a beautiful location where one can relax and enjoy the music. The park is immaculately maintained and offers restrooms and a well run cafe. Just a good place to visit and enjoy at any time during the year an oasis of beauty and calm at all times and a great facility for the town for all to use visitors and locals alike.

“A superb amenity for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Great to use at all times of the year. Excellent children's play area close to a well run cafe with outside covered seating - has reasonable prices too. There is a well maintained hard surface tennis court which is popular the mid teen-age fraternity. The bandstand is widely used on Sunday's in the summer and can be very entertaining. Good rest room facilities that have recently been upgraded. All of the facilities are well maintained. All in all an asset to the town and a pleasure to use
