It's flat on one side and has a natural but more bumpy path on the other so it's a comfortable walk And is also suitable for young children on bikes, scooters etc. The cafe is nice for tea and cake afterwards. The ice cream van... More

Took in a walk around the park whilst staying in the nearby Orchard hotel. Nicely laid out and spotted a fair degree of wildlife. Very enjoyable.

I have visited here many times since the trams have arrived it's a little more tricky to enter the park as you can only do this from one side of the road and there isn't a lot of parking unless you park in the uni. There is a large playground which is nice and a large boating lake were you... More

Brilliant day out. Lots of space to run around. Art gallery on site. Boating lake too. Great cafe. Reasonable prices. Great play park. The adults like it as much as the kids. Also bring my school kids here. Very popular with all ages. A walk around the lake is nice and a cup of tea and a cake. Can't beat... More
