Really nice park with pond and ducks, relax strolling along pathway among the beautiful garden, mature trees and very colourful flowers. A place for the whole family, a picnic area, a children playground. All for free and plenty of on-street parking. Enjoy.

A beautiful park for all ages, set on the main road. Great playground area for the kids. Lots of nice walks to take around the park, a huge pond area with plenty of ducks. Plenty of areas to take a picnic or use one of the many seating areas
