I went to the park during a visit to Leicester, it is quite large with a boating lake and miniature railway (steam during my visit). Well worth a visit, recommended.

Beautiful park with some nice serene areas. It could be cleaner though I have often seen litter. We normally get some duck food to feed the birds.
