Plenty of walking trains to reach heather park area, always nice maintained and clean. Sat & Sun gets crowed with plenty of families enjoying the area. There is a garden with beautiful flowers within the park area.

I've visited when roses were in bloom and enjoyed it greatly. Last visit was a bit "off season" and less interesting. Park has many other amenities and great local resource.
