A nice little place...

It doesn't have to be summer to enjoy this type of place. Nice to have such a place close to the city centre and not too far out. Take a visit!

Love this park, one of our local ones so visit often. Well kept gardens & has a good play park. The cafe serves good food that caters for all. It's a shame some of the staff don't look happy to be working there. I see they get irritated with loud children. I'd recommend the cakes & coffee to everyone!

Lovely little place, very peaceful and refreshing. Perfect to hide away in the shade on a hot summer day.

Efficient staff look after your needs, set in the wooded surrounds of St Annes Wells Gardens. An historical park with lots of information about its past.
