Nice green space for a stroll and not far from the city centre. Some of the areas need a bit of tidying up. The animal section is good to watch the birds and guinea pigs, who never seem to be full up despite being fed...More

Just grabbed a bit of sunshine before a big downpour. Lovely park, clean and well maintained. Plenty of kids facilities, a cafe and monuments.
