A very nice garden in the city..parking could be a problem though...however lots of open areas for kids to play and well maintained lawns makes this place worthwhile to go for a walk or spend the time

Spent an hour wandering round and enjoying the piece and quiet while admiring the flowering plants. It’s not Kew but it was relaxing and clean.
