There aren't many Walled Gardens around but this is one of the best examples, beautifully laid out with neat pathways meandering though the extremely well kept flower beds.Take one of the historic walks thru the Bangor museum and end up in this wonderful grade.

This is a great place for a walk, it is flat terrain and there are lots of benches to sit on. It is very well maintained and the flower and vegetable gardens are beautiful. Would recommend for all ages.
