The park is free with plenty of parking. It has an expansive grass land with hillocks, water play areas, climbing castle, big grassy hill with a track to the top, swings, and so many things to do. A coffee shop, toilets etc. Wonderful.

Great, really big and the kiddies love it. We have just as much fun as the kids and there is also the old Armoury to check out.
