We just intended visiting Gyllyngvase beach and the cafe there, but after parking we discovered this lovely little park. The gardens are really quite lovely and we enjoyed our stroll through it before heading back beside the beach.

Falmouth has lots of lovely public gardens - all beautifully maintained. This one offers a quiet place to relax by the popular Gyllyngvase Beach and at the end of the coastal walk from Swanpool Beach.

Although not very large this is a very nice place to sit if you want relief from the beach. Lots of unusual plants. All nicely done and well maintained. Toilets nearby.

If you need to escape the beach, this is a very pleasant spot. Close to all the amenities. The shrubs and flowers are very well cared for.
