I cannot remember this park as a youth at all! It is really nice. Lots of birds seagulls included on the lake and a great little steam train circling the park. Minchellas ice cream served in the park.

The park has a little train that you can ride for only 2 pound. It is a cheap summer day out and you can have a picnic on the big fields it is amazing.

It's a park. Not a lot to say really. Clean and functional. Probably better in the summer than winter but nice enough for a walk around.
