Well presented park with a picturesque river running through it. They were hosting a nice farmers market when we were there.

Kids had a ball playing here. Was a bit cold but lovely with the sound of the river behind. Probably due for some repair esp the BBQ area.

The kids kicked the soccer ball around, and played at the playground. We had a nice stroll along the river before eating lunch. Nice, clean bbq area, toilets and park. Had a fun and relaxing few hours before our long drive back home.

Perfect position for adults to sip coffee at nearby cafe whilst watching playti e in lovely shady playground in summer. Can be chilly in winter months due to large trees. Very crowded in holiday time.
