  • This park, if memory serves me correctly, was near the city centre and a good place to relax and rest before our evening activities (seeing Coldplay was our endgame). Lovely greenery but a bit busy.

  • Big nice and clean park. Easy to park, not specifically expensive compare to other places. 2 great playgrounds and a skate park. Nice duck pond with baby ducklings. Clean public toilets. Love this place and going very often.
  • Beautiful park/arboretum. Very large. Lots of trees, some of which are very unusual, info given. Beautiful river runs through it too. Lots of seating. The central area is fairly flat, and you can get away with wheelchairs, and you can also walk up various steps to different levels.
