If one of these doesn’t take your fancy you could always reconnect with an old favourite!
With amazing riverside walks this park is very pretty. The gardens look great all year round and they are well maintained. Many birds live on the river & weir area so bring your bread to feed the ducks and swans. With a large playground and skate park for children, there is lots to do for both young and old.
