Beautiful gardens. 10 minutes walk from the town centre. Most of the trees are labelled. Peaceful. You can take a circular route, either clockwise or anti. There is a pond towards the bottom end. There is a café near the entrance

Lovely gardens and park for children. Some lovely plants and trees and a nice pond area. Nice space and play area for kids. It's not obvious that this place is there. There's a cafe as well with garden. Note: Dogs aren't allowed.
