What an amazing place. I am not just saying this as an ex-pupil from the 70's but the volunteers have done an amazing job of restoring and the constant up keep of the gardens. There is a wonderful park trail, parts of which can become muddy. Check out the bird hide on the main lake and get to learn about the heronry on the island.
Open on the first Sunday of every month from Feb to Oct and other special occasion days its well worth the visit. Stop off for a tea and a superb peace of cake, I don't remember the cake being that good back in my school days.

I strongly recommend the "Gatton Country Fair Day" which is fun for all age groups.
