Passed through here while walking to the centre. Possibly the most striking war memorial I have ever seen. Immaculately maintained gardens and grounds. Lovely to wander through and ponder life, the universe and everything in between. Definitely a place to sit and waste a warm...More

A small park but combine it with Palmerston park and East park and you can make a nice walk in the park!

Enjoyed strolling through here. The cenotaph was a poignant memorial with the names on glass panels. Basically used as a thoroughfare from uni to town by the look of it!
