Great place for dog walking, taking part in the 5k park runs each Saturday or simply taking a stroll, this park is [art of Southport's history. There's a lake with swans and ducks in, outdoor exercise equipment and childrens park.

Lovely park to take a picnic. Shame we couldn't get in the conservatory but I guess that's to stop vandals. Good play park for children. Nice rose garden. Big lake with lots of ducks and a cafe and ice cream place. Well worth a visit
