Nice green space for a stroll and not far from the city centre. Some of the areas need a bit of tidying up. The animal section is good to watch the birds and guinea pigs, who never seem to be full up despite being fed by the public!

Just grabbed a bit of sunshine before a big downpour. Lovely park, clean and well maintained. Plenty of kids facilities, a cafe and monuments.

This is a nice big park that many people seemed to be enjoying. It did seem a bit unkept, but I wonder if it was just because it was early spring and the flower beds had not been planted and cared for. We saw lots of children with their parents, it seemed to have a safe, cosy atmosphere. There were some enclosures for birds and guinea pigs. A few nice statures and fountains also.

A little bit run down, but still free and a great place to relax or take kids to see the animals. Would benefit from the council investing in to it.

Took some friends here in December after they had visited war memorial as they wanted to explore. Haven't been for number of years and was disappointed to see how run down the aviary areas were. My children used to love these but very poorly stocked and looked generally grubby. No acces any longer to glasshouses either that I could see? On the plus side the play area is very inviting and certainly wasn't there when I used to take my children. Looked lovely and safe and fun. Worth knowing for the nicer weather for the grandchildren! We bviously in December everything very bare but still nice to have a green oasis in city centre.
