I do love this place but unfortunately it is infested with wasps and I went here for a picnic which is not a great idea for those who hate bees and wasps. Other than that I do love going here to relax and enjoy the sun (when it's actually out) lol People are friendly and the environment is really chilled... More

What do you want to do? Walk round the pools? Feed the ducks? (You shouldn't really, but the pigeons will take what the ducks don't.) Do a bit of fishing? Take the kids to play in the playground and to have a go on the zip wire? Have a family game of crazy golf? Stroll round the flower beds and... More

This park is always a hive of activity in the summer. I do a tai chi class here and the Mac centre is filled with art on displace and opportunities to get involved. The park has a great play are of children and is wonderful for a bike ride. Lots of hidden places to explore. Well worth a visit.

Wanted to make the most of a sunny day before winter kicked in. Cannon Hill Park has a number of things to do that can keep a family occupied. Park is huge with few water ponds. There is a large pond where there is a white swan peddle boating available for families. There is a trail that runs around the... More

I would definitely visit Cannon Hill Park again. The gardens are beautiful and very well kept, the park is safe and family-friendly, and there are lots of things to do, including exercising, having a picnic, meeting friends, walking around, even playing Pokemon Go if you like that game too. Highly recommended!

This is a large and beautiful park. Lovely flowerbeds, a lake, lots of trees and grassy areas. Boats on the lake, an arts centre, a funfair, a sandy 'beach' for the summer. But, considering the size of the park, the number of people who use it, and the money that has clearly been invested, I felt the children's play areas... More

I have visited this park since childhood and have always loved the formal gardens and it's little nooks and crannies. A great place for families to enjoy with the ponds and boats and also just to enjoy a walk in its years old splendour. Great facilities on site with cafes and the art centre, plus at times festivals. Not forgetting... More

Lovely family park, lots to do. Pedlo swans available during summer holidays. Nice cafe onsite with outdoor and indoor seating. Went to the small fair that's on at the moment £1 per ride. Lots of rides for smaller children. Lovely place to visit for cheap day out. Also a nature reserve onsite.
