Not a very long walk but it takes you from the city down to the river. This garden is looked after and popular with visitors. It is free to enter and has some history notices placed throughout the garden.

This is a collection of column bases, capitols and columns, rescued from various locations and assembled in one location. Pretty for a stroll or picnic.

The roman gardens are very well kept and provide a nice peaceful space to stroll through down to the river or sit and rest a while.

The park contains relics from Roman time with plaques describing their use. Starting from the Ampitheatre end, the park is level then has a choice of ramps or steps leading down to the River Dee and the Groves.

The gardens are an oasis of calm in the city and the paths are lined with pieces of Roman architecture, such as pillars, discovered elsewhere in the city. Very nice, especially sitting with the sun on your back.
