These gardens are a most pleasant morning out. Many of the plantings have good signage. We enjoyed the wide accessible paths,whilst undulating in places are wheel chair accessible. There are many species of birds for the bird watchers and lots of photo opportunities.
Stunning relaxing park. So many beautiful plants and roses. Sit back and take it in.
I really enjoy this visiting this garden - it has a lovely pond area, a great kids playground area and the specimen trees are all excellent. It is great for dog lovers as well is there is an area where dogs can run around without a leash. The park staff do a great job keeping it looking at it's best.
Very large park with nice boardwalk walkway and a play gym at the back. Tonnes of space and very tranquil. Additionally it also has a nice dog walking area.
Such a beautiful, natural sprawling space. Created and cared for with so much care and creativity. Great place for walks, observing ducks and other birds, exercise, picnics and a breath of fresh air. Huge variety of plant life. The sensory gardens are a great place to bring kids to discover nature.
