Look out for events - something often going on there. I saw circus skills workshop and 'The Ambling Band' on the same afternoon. Easy access to city centre. Nice for picnics. Views of the river.

Castle Park is a busy area with people using it to get to the shops, work etc, but it's still nice to stroll around. The old St John's church has a little garden around it and benches, so again worth a wander round. You are also close to the water at the bottom end of the park.

It's a nice idea, putting a small park in the centre of a city, but it doesn't quite work. It is too small to be much of a park, just a quiet and pretty throughfare really. Very nice views over the water though whilst walking along.

The castle is a ruin. But the park is very nice even though it's not that big. When the sun is out, it's really enjoyable.

A wonderful hilly and green park in the city center. Perfect for strolling, picnics and people watching. Well kept, gardens and a ruined church that makes for intetesting photographic opportunities. We spent a few hours resting from our morning walkaround and enjoyed the sunshine along with our picnic.

It is nice to see the improvements to Castle Park both in terms of the grassed areas and the cycle path. The park is a nice place to sit and relax whilst watching the world go by. There always seems to be something interesting going on. They do appear to be excavating and restoring the old Castle Keep which has... More
