Pleasant town centre park offering green spaces, with both woodland and riverside walks as well as a skate park and an arboretum. Fairly well tended by the council as regards both planting and litter collecting.

Spectacular flower displays and interesting varied totem type poles around designed by children. There is a maze and walks which can be mainly under trees so ok if raining. Children playground. A little gem
