Lovely park that I wish I knew about when my daughter was younger. Cafe and toilets (20p needed) that are nice and clean. Well kept and popular on sunny days.

Visited the park, just relaxing and walking. Flower beds were beautiful. All in our party enjoyed the visit. Ice creams were superb. Such a lovely place to sit and take in the peace.
