A nice park that can at times,be spoilt by louts. Large open spaces ideal for walking the dog or just a quiet walk. Good bonfire night here and regular fair rides

Lots of nice parks around the city and this one is no exception. Lovely flower beds, big spaces, ruins and history plus a really nice cafe. Well worth a visit!

What a wonderful place, hidden very close to the city. Lovely walk with plenty of grounds. The parks are big, there's a fair on at the moment, lovely gardens to walk around and even a pet corner. All for FREE.
