I visited here with my family at the end of Rose week with my family. It was a lovely day with plenty of activity at the end of the festival which helped. It was every bit as good as it was years ago. Recommended.

Beautiful park something for everyone. Big kids play area for the children and rose gardens with live music during Rose Week for the adults. Also nice just for a pick nick as it has lots of hidden spots as well. Highly recommend
