Park is great and the golfing is pretty cheap. Only issue would be that the toilets are a decent distance from the cafe/shop area.

The park is looking a lot better after it's upgrade and has plenty for children to do. It's a lovely place to come on a sunny day.

This a pretty space to relax and have a wee picnic next to the river. The city obviously works hard at maintaining the grounds.
