We went here today for a great day out. Lots to do here. Play football, play at the park, a museum, walks and a cafe. Was great fun. However, there are a lot of wasps just now so watch out for them.

Aden Park is a place you can walk to, as we did from our hotel, or drive to, as many did the day we visited. Large picnic areas, places for children to explore, and nice walking trails make it a must see if you have...More
