Free entry, free parking. One of the most beautiful parks I have visited. Wide, level trails and paths take you by hundreds of florial varieties, through a georgeous, terraced rose garden in the shape of a five-acre bowl; a three deminsional hedge-maze; and one of...More

If you like walking in a park, this is for you. Great, clean, fresh, cared for. Flower gardens, large and small, well designed paths, breathtaking beauty at every turn. A rose garden, still beautiful in mid-September, amazing. Benches all over, to rest from time to...More

A lovely big green space in the middle of a town. Evidence of past flowers, but not being kept neat. The area around the crazy golf & lake were the best maintained. Some of the themed garden areas looked very 'unloved', and needed sprucing up....More

This is a nice place to see if you want to take a green breathe! We've been there in spring, before the flowering of the roses, but it might be wonderful when all the flowers are blooming!
